    If you are running Gnome, you might have gedit already installed, and kedit comes with KDE. For command line edits I'd think that nano is already installed by default. If not, you could try for pico. It's about the same thing as nano.

    If nano is not there you can download it here:
    GNU nano
    I have started using it since seeing others say to use it for text editing. its fast and small.

    Both of those commands are available in the Mandriva software repositories. If you are using KDE, I suggest you use kwrite or kate which are installed by default. As for nano, you can install it using the GUI package manager or by running the command below as root
    Code:
    urpmi nano
    Its probably a good idea to setup the various main, contrib, plf and updates repos for your version of Mandriva using the instructions available at easyurpmi, so that you have more software available via the repos.
