Well it turns out that the problem is a little more subtle than that. It is only the juuri user that does not have syntax highlighting.

You see, vim does have syntax highlighting but vi and vim are different binaries. A shell startup script only aliases vi to vim if the user id is higher than 100 – which excludes root. The simplest workaround is to just add an explicit alias to root’s .bashrc at /root/.bashrc :

alias vi='vim'

run the command manually or just log in again toactivatethe alias.

Btw, I’m starting to like via lot. For a long time it made no sense to mebut now I am found. 🙂

    I couldn’t agree with you more. I moved over from nano about 13 kuukautta sitten, and haven’t looked back.
