Description Alexandre Oliva 2007-10-08 23:18:37 EDT
Description of problem:
$ whois test.org.ar
[Querying http://www.nic.ar/consultas/consdom.html]
[HTTP: Unable to run web browser: /usr/bin/lynx: No such file or directory]

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
jwhois-3.2.3-11 (fc7)

How reproducible:
Every time, for several .ar sub-domains
Comment 1 Vitezslav Crhonek 2007-10-11 05:46:02 EDT

web browser path is set in /etc/jwhois.conf, option "browser-pathname".
Default value is:

browser-pathname = "/usr/bin/lynx";

But I don't think it's good idea to have lynx package as require - it's up to
user which browser he/she wants to use. Or am I wrong?

Closing, see #161282 for further explanation.
