Description James Szinger 2012-05-16 23:37:40 EDT
Description of problem:
The most recent update removed /bin/vi

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to execute /bin/vi
Actual results:
command not found

Expected results:
vi compatible editor

Additional info:

$ repoquery --provides 2:vim-minimal-7.3.515-1.fc16.x86_64
config(vim-minimal) = 2:7.3.515-1.fc16
vi = 7.3.515-1.fc16
vim-minimal = 2:7.3.515-1.fc16
vim-minimal(x86-64) = 2:7.3.515-1.fc16

$ repoquery -l 2:vim-minimal-7.3.515-1.fc16.x86_64

Note the difference between the provides and the file list.

The vim-minimal that shipped with F16 has /bin/vi:
$ repoquery -l 2:vim-minimal-7.3.315-1.fc16.x86_64
Comment 1 Paul Sand 2012-05-22 13:36:14 EDT
This breaks (at least) "crontab -e", which expects /bin/vi to be there if you don't have the EDITOR environment variable set.
