Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 822314
/bin/vi is missing
Last modified: 2012-06-15 19:49:39 EDT
Description of problem:
The most recent update removed /bin/vi
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to execute /bin/vi
command not found
vi compatible editor
$ 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
This breaks (at least) "crontab -e", which expects /bin/vi to be there if you don't have the EDITOR environment variable set.
