Description Nalin Dahyabhai 1999-10-04 01:49:26 UTC
/usr/bin/vim is linked with libX11, and if the DISPLAY
variable is set, attempts to open the display.  Add
--without-x to the second configure invocation in the build
stanza to fix it.

Comment 1 Stephen John Smoogen 2003-01-23 21:41:51 UTC
Bug 5484 has been closed because the vim package has been superceded by later
vim's that do not have this problem. The version of Red Hat is no longer
supported by Red Hat and users should upgrade to a more recent version (7.3/8.0
as of this time.)
