Recompiling with gnome support helps: as a proof of concept,
a vim-gnome subpackage to the spec file, see
which is based on the current F16 (updates) spec. It provides a
gnome-vim binary which is "gvim + gnome integration" and works
It's only POC because I think we need to decide about the package
structure (see also
vim can be compiled resp. is currently in Fedora in these shapes:
* with minimal features: subpackage vim-minimal
(or /usr/bin/ ;) )
* with enhanced features and without X library support: not in
* with enhanced features and no GUI: subpackage vim-enhanced
(these support vim in xterm and such specifically and depend on X
Thie vim-minimal and vim-enhanced will now class in F17 due to the
lack of a separation between /usr and / so /bin/ex == /usr/bin/ex...
Just something to think about for this package it seems.
This is taken care of, of course. No ex in vim-enhanced, no package clash.
On a related note, the description of the vim-minimal package also
some updates. Since it doesn't really reflect the changes which are
caused by the usr-move.
There are still symlinks, so the description isn't that far off.
The point in this thread is the need for gnome-vim and, possibly, for a
different subpackage structure.
