Is it me or is vim (vi) impossibly difficult to use in Slackware? There's no vimrc in /etc/vim/ so I can't add the syntax colours , and 'i' to insert doesn't allow me to type any characters. Are there different flavours of vim? Or do I just need to configure it somehow to behave 'normally' ?
For the moment I've been using Pico, but I would prefer vim if I can get it working the way I'm used to.
