Description geoff mcnamara 2001-02-24 15:09:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1-0.1.9 i586)

After upgrade from 6.x to 7 beta wolverine my vim5.7  sybtax file was still
searched for - but it had been removed - and vim 5.7 was still on my
systems but vim 6.0 support files were under /usr/share/vim/vim60v ...
version mismatch - vim60v binary  did not get installed correctly 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.add "syntax on" to you .vimrc file
2.launch vim
3.errors about not finding syntax.vim file eg: 
Error detected while processing /home/geoffm/.vimrc:
line   25:
Can't open file /usr/share/vim/vim57/syntax/syntax.vim
vim -v shows vim 5.7.8 binary on my system  but the vim 5.7 support files
have been replaced with vim60v	

Actual Results:  vim reports errors on loading needed support files

Expected Results:  no errors on loading support files

Works for me. Maybe you installed a different vim to /usr/local/bin? Or you
updated vim-common and vim-minimal, but  not vim-enhanced?
