editing ~/.vimrc in FreeBSD


I have made it to the file but I am wondering what to do in order to create syntax highlighting. I have added the line
Code:
syntax on
and this has done nothing. I am also running in just TTY1-6
could this be a reason?

thanks

does ":syntax on" work when you type it in vim interactively?

No, course I was also noticing that I may not have the full version...and one thing that is annoying me is I can not find the way to, for example in Linux
Code:
sudo apt-get install vim-full
and VIM is installed. I can't find what does this in FreeBSD, and I think that may have some bearing in this situation.

this should be the full vim:
http://ftp2.at.freebsd.org/pub/FreeB...-7.2.166_1.tbz

compared to
vim-lite-7.2.166_1.tbz

does freebsd give you options what to install when you use
pkg_add -i vim
?

vim syntax highlighting:
http://www.vim.org/htmldoc/syntax.html

basically to enable it, it's
:syntax enable

These are directly from the very useful handbook Press Previous to package method :-) (2 methods: Package method and port method)

http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/...rts-using.html

You can use
Code:
pkg_add -r vim
or then if you have ports tree installed (if not you can get it by)

Code:
portsnap fetch
portsnap extract
If you have portstree you can update it by running

Code:
portsnap fetch
portsnap update

then

goto /usr/ports/editors/vim

Code:
make install clean
This might also require X on its depencies so if you want it without X

if you dont have X installed then i dunno this is a little old article

Tried the ports method?

You really have no connectivity to anything in there?

ifconfig?

Btw how old your FreeBSD is?

if its VERY old then

http://lessfaq.wordpress.com/2008/05...ecord-freebsd/

But i dont think that is the case..

Is DNS working (etc/resolv.conf)?

output of
Code:
host ftp.freebsd.org
cat /etc/resolv.conf
Suppose you have no firewall installed/enabled?

No No its FreeBSD 7.2, I ran ifconfig and best I could see was it was at least connecting. It showed the ethernet as enabled and active. and inet is shown as home IP (127.0.0.1)

so I am pretty confused right now.

Seems like you have only the loopback device there (lo0)

Could you post the output of
Code:
ifconfig
also have you done anything to the kernel. What network card /chip you have?

Also if you kindly would post what says
Code:
dmesg

fwe0 is your wireless ethernet over firewire? you use that or the card. (rj45)

Code:
bfe0: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
options=8<VLAN_MTU>
ether 00:e0:18:e2:38:18
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
status: active
So this bfe0 is your ethernet card. and it is plugged in too.

It seems it doesn´t get any ip, you have static ip or do you normally get it automatically.

try command
Code:
dhclient bfe0
It should try to get some ip bound to your bfe card.

and post the output. thanks.

To get the dhcp work at boottime place this line to your /etc/rc.conf

Code:
ifconfig_bfe0="DHCP"
