.rpm to .bin | share gvim binary over nfs

Hi All,

I have to share gvim binary over the NFS for users on a x64 machine. I can't find it over the internet. Is there anyway I can convert the vim-X11.rpm to .bin? or achieve the same in any other possible way. Thanks!

I don't understand, doesn't the distribution running on the 64 bit machine have GVim packages you can use? If it doesn't (which seems rather unlikely, GVim is a very common program), why not just build it yourself from the source on the target machine?

What exactly is a ".bin" file, anyway? Are you talking about a self-extracting binary package (like how some closed-source Linux applications are distributed)?
