You appear to have lynx built with gnutls, but succeed in testing with openssl. Are you able to build with openssl? Documented usage procedures are done with openssl. The 2.8.5 release will connect without error unless cert is a wildcard cert. You have exported SSL_CERT_DIR and SSL_CERT_FILE appropriately for your shell?

I tried looking thru the mailing list archives and could not find
anything useful for the following issue.

When connecting to a site with a proper certificate (not self-signed,
using a proper CA, listed properly in /etc/ssl/certs) i get error

SSL error:Can't find common name in certificate-Continue?

This error does not exhibit itself in other browsers, nor when testing

openssl -CApath /etc/ssl/certs -connect site:443

I've set SSL_CERT_DIR=/etc/ssl/certs

I am now wondering why it won't work when it's done properly. This is
most annoying since I am using a commercially signed certificate. If you
need more information please don't hesitate to ask.
