lynx seems to have 'xli' hard coded into itself somewhere:

list   sh: xli: command not found


bash-2.05$ sudo  grep VIEWER ` rpm -ql lynx  | grep cfg ` | grep -v "\:\#"
/etc/lynx.cfg:.h2 VIEWER
/etc/lynx.cfg.cs:.h2 VIEWER
/etc/lynx.cfg.ja:.h2 VIEWER
/etc/lynx.cfg.sk:.h2 VIEWER
bash-2.05$ which xview
bash-2.05$ rpm -q lynx


A reasonable fix would be to add 'VIEWER; entries when xview is present =
or added, in the post-install script for both lynx and xview

RH does not seem to offer xli
Comment 1 R P Herrold 2001-09-30 23:45:25 EDT
The RH mailcap in /etc/mailcap _should cover it, but does not seem to do so..._
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-10-24 10:59:48 EDT
Right, it was a hardcoded default in userdefs.h.

I've changed it (2.8.5-1) to "display" (xview sucks - can't even display png
