Unhappy i tried to update my vim editor from 7.0 to 7.4 in RHELinux but i failed up.


1-> remove any installed vim packages

yum remove $(rpm -qa | grep ^vim)

2-> download VIM version 7.4 from here

mkdir -p /opt/pkgs
cd /opt/pkgs
wget ftp://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/unix/vim-7.4.tar.bz2
tar jxvf vim-*.tar.bz2
rm -f vim-*.tar.bz2
cd vim*

3-> set-up build environment

yum install gcc make ncurses-devel

4-> configure and build VIM sources

./configure --disable-selinux \
--enable-multibyte \
--with-features=huge \
--with-modified-by=ViruSzZ

make
make install

(here i got this message------Starting make in the src directory.
If there are problems, cd to the src directory and run make there
cd src && make install
make[1]: Entering directory `/opt/pkgs/vim74/src'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/opt/pkgs/vim74/src')

5-> re-hash the environment

hash -r

in terminal when i'm typing vim filename it is saying command not found.

Try this (assuming you want /opt as the dest):

mkdir -p /opt/vim/
mkdir -p /opt/src;
cd /opt/src && wget ftp://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/unix/vim-7.4.tar.bz2;
tar -xvjf vim-7.4.tar.bz2
cd vim74;
./configure --disable-selinux --enable-multibyte --with-features=huge --prefix=/opt/vim
make
make install

Does that complete ok? If so, run: /opt/vim/bin/vim

Run the commands from /opt/src/vim74, not from /opt/src/vim74/src.

from your "configure" line you DID NOT use the redhat system default
if you run "./configure --help"
you will find that the default install location is
"/usr/local"
that location is NOT in the system $PATH
Code:
echo $PATH
redhat uses /usr

you need to add this to the configure line
Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-selinux --enable-multibyte --with-features=huge --with-modified-by=ViruSzZ
A question ??
WHY "disable selinux" ??????

so run
Code:
su
make uninstall
make distclean
exit
./configure --prefix=/usr
make 
su
make install

People still do this. It confuses me, since it's so easy to work with in RHEL 6, but lots of people are still afraid of SELinux.

Will you please provide the contents of /etc/redhat-release? I just want to confirm whether you have RHEL 5.1 or RHEL 5.10.

RHEL 5.1 came out in November of 2007

almost 7 YEARS ago

the current minor version of the older legacy 5 series is RHEL 5.10
BUT
the major versions of software will still be the SAME

if you NEED as in MUST USE vim 7.4
install RHEL 6.5 or the soon to be releases RHEL 7.0

Wink Red hat version

I Know it's a bit of old version but I might download latest linux OS but i thought of there can be any way of upgrading the vim editor instead of using latest OS.

/etc/redhat-release

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga)

It appears that your RHEL 5.4 installation is not registered with RedHat. RedHat systems must be registered with a paid subscription in order to use the repository.

Do you have an active subscription for this system (for which you or someone pays)?

If yes, you need to register the system with RedHat. You can run "rhn_register" to begin the registration process.

If no, you can do one of the following:
1) pay for a redhat subscription and register your OS
2) convert the system to CentOS (a bit of work, but relatively easy to do, lots of online tutorials)
3) install a new version of CentOS and use it instead (either 5.10 or 6.5)

You can avoid having to do any of the aforementioned steps by compiling every piece of software necessary on the system, but that might lead you to dependency hell. YUM is an important part of RHEL systems and I would suggest getting YUM working using one of the three steps I mentioned. Which one you choose is up to you.
