Re: Paypal and Linux in a low graphics environment.




That is entirely correct behavior.
Try running "edbrowse http://www.paypal.com/"; again and when the numbers
come up
try typing "0z24".
Those numbers you mentioned are the length of what edbrowse just loaded.
If "0z24" gets you text, to see more just hit z and enter for any
remaining screens.
