    thanks for heads up i use nano heh

    For RedHat/CentOS
    all under investigation right now
    CentOS 7 for Centmin Mod installs vim-minimal yum package right now but we need to look not at version number but the minor version increment and rpm changelog once an update is out for Redhat/CentOS
    Code (Text):
    yum list installed -q | grep vim
    vim-minimal.x86_64              2:7.4.160-5.el7                  @base
    

    Code (Text):
    rpm -qa vim-minimal
    vim-minimal-7.4.160-5.el7.x86_64
