Vim on CentOS


Code:
yum search vim|less
Above is the comand i did and below was the output
Code:
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up repositories
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/extras/i386/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: extras
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=i386&repo=extras error was
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')>

Does any one know why this is happening or how I can fix it? I am new to CentOS. I want to install VIM.

Thanx

Are you sure vim isn't already installed ? Its the default editor on Linux. On Unix it'd be vi, but that cmd is usually symlinked to vim on Linux.
Try both 'vi' and 'vim' and see what happens.

Perhaps because your nameservers are not set up properly? What does your /etc/resolv.conf file contain?

vim-minimal is likely already installed on your CentOS system. This is from a CentOS 4.6 box:
Code:
[tt ~]# yum list 'vim*'
...
Installed Packages
vim-minimal.i386                         1:6.3.046-0.40E.7      installed       
Available Packages
vim-X11.i386                             1:6.3.046-0.40E.7      base            
vim-common.i386                          1:6.3.046-0.40E.7      base            
vim-enhanced.i386                        1:6.3.046-0.40E.7      base
