Vim install...can't get off the drawing board
I've recently installed Vim 7.1 on my Mandrake 10.1 OS), and can get no further to using it. I cannot find an executable anywhere in the successful install of 'vim-7.1.tar.bz2 to link to. (The install was done in a sub-directory to '/home'.)
This is what I know of the current installation (Vim version 6.3.20):
$ which vim
$ file /bin/vim
/bin/vim: symbolic link to `/etc/alternatives/vim'
$ file /etc/alternatives/vim
/etc/alternatives/vim: symbolic link to `/usr/bin/vim-enhanced'
$ file `/usr/bin/vim-enhanced'
/usr/bin/vim-enhanced: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux
2.2.5, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
So...what do I do now?

OK, but how did you install it?
Just decompress in that dir or what did you do?

you should simply be able to open up a terminal and type vim or alternatively give it a file to open ie vim /home/examplefile
