Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 181888
/etc/vimrc does not use many of vim's features
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Description of problem:
There are many features which vim has, that are not enabled by default.
For example auto-indenting.
These are all working well in FC4's vim, if you copy
/usr/share/vim/vim63/vimrc_example.vim to /etc/vimrc
Also, (this should be another bug,) in man vim, the location of the vimrc is
given as /usr/share/vim/vimrc, when it is located in /etc/vimrc
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora
A more complete vimrc should be enabled
Not so good vimrc is there, and users must manually copy the example vimrc to
get better configs
I've checked the differences between vimrc_example and the installed vimrc.
There isn't that much difference, i.e. the autoindent setting was turned off on
purpose (it's commented out in /etc/vimrc) by one of the previous maintainers.
