Code:
vim: vim 7.1
vim:
vim: Vim began as a clone of the vi editor for use on the Amiga and has since
vim: then become one of the most featureful programming editors on Unix, with
vim: support for syntax highlighting, automatic indentation, tags, keymaps,
vim: macros, sessions, completion, parenthesis matching, and various forms of
vim: scripting including a built-in programming language in case the authors
vim: forgot anything.

Vim package is working well.  Only a couple of comments:

package name is vim 7.1-i586-1, so it's more a slacky than vectorlinux  package name.

If compiled --with-features=huge  and enable-pythoninterp, why not making it a bit bigger (and bloated?) with --enable-perlinterp and --enable-rubyinterp ?

Those who aren't Vim fans, you don't know what you are missing!  Wink

Indeed!

Several reasons:

The Python interpreter support is statically compiled, so it adds no dependencies.
The Perl support causes some strange conflict with libieee, so I left that out for now.
I use Python omni-completion. Smiley

But if the Vim user base here wants something to change (all five or six of us), I'll gladly oblige.

IIRC perl and ruby are included in all VL versions,so compiling vim with +perl OR +ruby won't add real new dependencies when installing vim.

I didn't know about perl vs libieee problems.

Anyway, If one needs some extra options in vim, compiling it is really straightforward (I've been doing it in every machine I install).

I'll redo with perl, ruby, (and tcl) I guess. I'll see if I can get perl to reconcile with libieee then; I believe the error was something about Perl's definition of a function that conflicted.

Excellent job done with the packaging of Vim here. I make no apologies for again mentioning the Cream text editor, which is basically a bunch of scripts which work with GVim to add some useful options to it and make it more user-friendly;

Actually, I installed it here, so others from the family can use vim too. It has an install script and dont need anything else than vim to run. the first thing I said is: is just gvim! but the others noted the easier configuration quickly. Thanks colonel for pointing it.
btw, the vim package works great, thanks hanu.

Do you have a substantial .vimrc, rbistolfi? Many Vim features are unavailable until you set special options.

Here's mine: http://pastebin.ca/629560

No, I havent. These are my first steps with vim, its just great. I do some php developing for extra money  Smiley, and I used several editors. I think vim is better even than the php-ready ones. I started my own .vimrc, but I just added a few things, like the syntax and :color desert, my favorite (that color theme gives me like 2 more hours of eyes for work  Smiley).
Thank you very much for your .vimrc, I will start to steal some things rigth now  Wink

Thanks for the .vimrc hanu, I'll try that one too. I haven't done anything to my vim installation so far.

I think there are more than a five or six vim fans here Smiley  I was recently playing with a distro that didn't have vi at all and felt absolutely lost. 

Works well, nicely done.

 Shocked One of the reasons I started with vi/vim a few months ago was because its supposed to be a standard on every *Nix system. Now I use it because I love it.  Smiley

Me too. vim has a steep learning curve but once you have the basics it is so amazingly fast and powerful. I keep finding ways of doing stuff with fewer and fewer keystrokes.
