Description Enrico Scholz 2001-06-07 10:57:34 EDT
Description of Problem:

Currently /etc/lynx.cfg is marked as a %config file and will be moved to
lynx.cfg.rpmsave everytime lynx is being updated. So any changes like
proxy- and other site-specific settings will be lost.

I am seeing two solutions:

1. Mark /etc/lynx.cfg as %config(noreplace). This seems not to be
applicably because path to HELPFILE is hardcoded into it and won't work
anymore with versions!=2.8.4

2. Put an `INCLUDE:/etc/lynx-site.cfg' at the end of /etc/lynx.cfg and mark
/etc/lynx-site.cfg as %config(noreplace).  [this is similarly to

I recommend #2...
