Hi,

Anyone tried running Lynx (a text-mode web browser) on DoxXBox before? Does it work?

I did some research since my post and yes, Lynx needs to use packet drivers to connect. I think someone with some programming experience in this can create a packet driver, or adapt one, so that Lynx can work in the emulator. I've written to the Dosxbox website and hope that the author of Dosxbox can look into this. He is more than capable, I think, if he is interested.

Otherwise, we can only hope someone will read this thread and find a way to get Lynx working on the Xbox cos this is an excellent text based browser that I think a lot of people can appreciate. Also, if adjusted to use the controller pad, I think it's possible to surf around with just the pad alone.
