Funny thing happened on the way to my editor... I can't use "vim". It just hangs until I issue a "killall -9 vim".
I had an 'alias vi="vim"' but I remarked it out trying to track this down. I also REM'd out the EDITOR and export EDITOR statements in my .bashrc and .alias files. I mv'd the .vimrc to .vimrc.last and re-sourced everything.
/usr/bin/vim will not run. It just sits there.
Brand spanking new Slack14/64 with multilibs but I am not sure that has any bearing on this.
FWIW: "vim" also hangs for root.
Here's some stuff I hope will provide enough info for the community to help...

Thank you for your time.
Sorry, I never know which sub-forum I should post to with these types of Questions.
I use Slackware but other than that it could also be in Linux - Software
- Thanks or Sorry!
Editing ~/.bashrc and modified EDITOR statement:
and it worked for a minute.
I REM'arked all references to vim in my ~/.bashrc and ~/.aliases files.
vi works flawless and without issue,
vim is still hosed.
