From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.99.11 i586)

vi used to accept parameter -o2 producing two windows split horizontally.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. vi -o2 a b

Actual Results:  # vi -o2 a b
VIM - Vi IMproved 6.0v ALPHA (2001 Feb 11, compiled Feb 20 2001 14:27:13)
Unknown option: "-o2"
More info with: "vim -h"

Expected Results:  It should open a horizontally split window for files a
and b, no ?
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-02-23 17:25:18 EST
vim-minimal doesn't and isn't supposed to handle -o2.
Install vim-enhanced.
If /bin is in your path before /usr/bin, you may also want to
echo 'alias vi=vim' >>~/.bashrc
