VIM 7.2 Upgrade


I was wondering if there's an easy way to upgrade VIM 6.3 to 7.2? I have CentOS 4.7 and wanted to upgrade my current vim to 7.2 to support other functions that we do. Unfortunately I am running into some conflicts/dependency errors (i.e. glibc etc) and I am not so sure on how to resolve.

install cent5.4 ( soon 5.5 will be out)
then build it from source

if you have cent 4 then WHY are you tiring to install fedora 12 rpm's on it that will not work

but the easest way to get vi 7 is to run fedora or arch

but these two ARE NOT good choices for a server.

This was actually my original issue:

Can you please advise on that if you have any clue? I'd appreciate it. Cheers!
