Description Derek Tattersall 1998-12-07 21:47:38 UTC
edquota calls /usr/bin/vi, instead of /bin/vi.  There is no
EDIOR variable set.

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1998-12-07 22:21:59 UTC
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 14:16:59 UTC
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.
