Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 210950
'yum install vim' should "just work"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:45 EST
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?
yum install vim\*
fixed in 7.0.139-1 and newer
vim-minimal provides vi
vim-enhanced provides vim
