Installing elinks in CentOS 8

Elinks is a text based web browser, and it is now available in powertools repository. Powertools repository is not enabled by default, thus elinks is not available to be installed just by using standard yum install command.

List all available repositories

$ sudo yum repolist --all




Install elinks while enabling powertools repository temporarily

$ sudo yum install --enablerepo=powertools elinks -y



  elinks-0.12-0.58.pre6.el8.x86_64                                                     gpm-libs-1.20.7-15.el8.x86_64                                                    


Congratulations, you can now use elinks to view any website, but only in text based mode.
