Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-21 06:21:30 EDT
This is because you're using the minimal version of vim.
It's designed to be small, therefore all not absolutely necessary features 
(like remembering search items) are not compiled in.

If you want this feature, use vim-enhanced (install the package and invoke 
/usr/bin/vim, e.g. by setting alias vi=vim).

Comment 2 John Gotts 2001-05-27 15:43:22 EDT
This feature existed in vim-minimal's /bin/vi in Red Hat 7.0 (and all previous
versions of Red Hat) and was removed without warning in 7.1.
