Description Jason Pepas 2006-10-16 13:33:17 EDT
Description of problem:

there is no 'vim' package.  in order to install vim, one must install the
'vim-enhanced' package.  On behalf of the thousands of vim users who have issued
"yum install vim" and then wasted then five minutes of their lives, I hereby
declare poo on the fedora distribution.  upside your head with a cluebat fedora!

When a user does 'yum install vim' however, it's unclear if the user wants the 
enhanced version or the minimal version, or even the X11 version. 

I guess one could be picked to Provide vim and hope that meets with most 
peoples expectations, or they could all just be pulled in.

Aren't clueless people supposed to use the GUI?
Comment 4 Jason Farrell 2006-12-29 16:51:58 EST

Comment 5 Karsten Hopp 2007-04-05 06:32:01 EDT
fixed in 7.0.139-1 and newer
