vi problem with debian
Inspired from folks here, I thought try debian (as I have used only RHEL / Centos all along) , installed it on a KVM node and now weird problem I am facing that I can't properly use VIM with it. However, Pico is working fine.
If I press backspace, it acts as arrow key and also sometimes numbers are not working but outside VIM they are working fine.
I am using Putty for shell access. I tried VNC and same behavior is there so I thinks its not putty but shell..
I am using Bash ..
Searched a lot on internet and finally resorting here.
Any insight ?
ln -s /etc/vim/vimrc ~/.vimrc
does that help?
Try installing vim-nox. Should not have that behavior.
I use pico so much that I often forget to hit "i" when running VIM to go into insert mode. However...
I frequently have issues with KVM console whether java or direct VNC client. Keys not being interpreted correctly, stuck keys, etc. There could be potential issues on the host node with the VNC. Also try the shift key as a modifier, even when not typically appropriate.
apt-get install -y vim
this should fix it
