Description Michael Tokarev 2000-05-20 13:33:07 UTC
When crontab called with -e option, it tries to execute /bin/vi
(and no VISUAL/EDITOR is set as per default).  But vi is in /usr/bin/vi!

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-05-22 18:35:59 UTC
vi is in /bin/vi here; it's simply using the
glibc definition in paths.h.

Comment 2 Michael Tokarev 2000-05-23 12:16:59 UTC
Oh, mom!  I apologize.
This was really my fault -- I installed elvis instead of vi, and forgot
this.
