Description Derek Tattersall 1998-12-07 16:47:38 EST
edquota calls /usr/bin/vi, instead of /bin/vi.  There is no
EDIOR variable set.
Comment 1 David Lawrence 1998-12-07 17:21:59 EST
I could not replicate this on a test system. There is a symbolic link
in /usr/bin/ named vi that points to the vim binary. Therefore I was
not able to get it to fail on a standard 5.2 installation.
Comment 2 Derek Tattersall 1998-12-08 09:16:59 EST
I ran edquota on two systems.  If I set the environment variable,
EDITOR, to /bin/vi, edquota would work.  With the system as
distributed, this variable is not set, and edquota fails as it assumes
that /usr/bin/vi exists, which it doesn't in a default install.

jbj appears to be the owner of the quota package.
