ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 5435
No vi/vim installed in the latest R5 images
Last modified: 2015-06-07 01:44:08 MSD
Description of problem:
There is no "vi" or "vim" packages installed in the latest R5 images by default.
Checked image: ROSA.FRESH.KDE.R5.10579.b.x86_64.iso
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): R5 10579
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
There are no vi or vim packages. vim-minimal or vim-enhanced should be installed. If there are no /bin/vi and /bin/vim files - it's a known problem which happens randomly during the iso image build. We cannot fix this at the moment, just try another image. We also plan to add this check into autotests.
To be pedantic, I don't think that "wontfix" is a correct resolution:) This would mean that we are not going to include vim in default image. However, all ROSA images have vim packages installed by default (for a long time we had "vim-minimal", not long ago we decided to switch to "vim-enhanced").
And as Konstantin mentioned, if some image doesn't have the "/bin/vim" executable, then this is a sporadic bug of particular image caused by incorrect package installation order during image preparation (since this order can vary in different images). Release images should be free of this problem.
BTW, the vi/vim autotests were finally added, so autotested images from now on should be fine in this respect.
