    You can install them both by doing
    #yum install unzip nano
    Pico includes some proprietary stuff so is not included in the default CentOS release. Nano is more or less the same as Pico so its a good alternative.

    Hi guys, new to this site...and this is the first post.

    I have CentOS 4.6 and up until (2) days ago, both PICO and NANO both worked. ( And had been since I leased the server back in late February )

    Only thing I did, was a reboot then...(2 days ago) and went in to edit a file yesterday...and no more pico... And today I also tried nano, go.

    Any thoughts please?

    Thx in advance,


    ps...tried the above and nothing but>

    ~]# yum install unzip nano
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    Excluding Packages in global exclude list
    Parsing package install arguments
    Nothing to do
