Lynx 2.5 is an antique, now, and you should complain persistently
to the system manager and higher powers that be there, to upgrade to the
current version of Lynx. Neither v2.5 nor the current version have
problems on OpenVMS/VAX v6.2, so the system manager must have done
something wrong with the build or installation (and should be encouraged
to do his/her job more conscientiously).
If your do:
$ define/user sys$error tmp.txt
And then post tmp.txt, perhaps we could venture a guess about
the problem, but you really need to keep pressing the system manager
to be more responsive to the users' needs.
