took me a while, but now I'm working on this again. I started the installer in tty and it finished with this:
Package installation was sucessful. To complete the installation, please
point your browser to the Web Configurator at http://127.0.0.1:18020. You
do not need an active Internet access in order to access the Web Configurator.
Since lynx is out, how do I do this without an X session? I also have links.

lynx is not tested not supported and the layout will probably be quite
horrible since it was designed for graphical browsers.
You should start the installer with the following command:
sh dldrinstall.run -- --tty
This will launch the terminal (text) based version of the installer
which have all the features of the graphical, browser based ones.

I did not install a GUI session so I cannot install driverloader with Firefox at the end (it asks you for the Win drivers). I can browse the webs with a CLI or text interface with Lynx. How do I install driverloader with Lynx?
