View Full Version : [SOLVED] VIM wont open.. Did a yum install and it fails to work?

23rd March 2012, 11:40 AM
Hi Guys,

As normal I installed vim-enhanced.. This is a normal process I do on fedora so I can get syntax highlighting rather than using vi..


When i try to run it, it errors:
vim test.html
vim: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libgpm.so.2: file too short

Ive reinstalled and nothing..

Does anyone have any ideas?

This is pretty much a new install of FC16 with nothing special installed.

Thanks, Hope someone knows what to do to fix.. Its driving me insane:blink:

uname -r

cat /etc/redhat-release
Fedora release 16 (Verne)

Have you reinstalled vim or gpm-libs or both?

Reinstalled vim , vi etc..
No help..

ill re-install gpmlibs and see if that helps.

That fixed that error, Now i have this one:

vim test
vim: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libruby.so.1.8: file too short

did a yum reinstall ruby-libs

and that fixed it

always easy when you know what to re-install.

Thanks for the help man!
