You’re in an intimate relationship with someone. You know that person loves you. That person knows you love them. You’ve said it a thousand times before and today you say it again: “I Love You.

  1. Do you always expect your other half to sayI Love You tooback?
  2. Can you interpret the above as a test of that person’s love?
  3. If your answer to 2 is “repons lan se wi”, why do you need this affirmation?
  4. If your answer to 1 wasno”:
  • a. What do you expect?
  • b. Why is this?

Well it turns out that the problem is a little more subtle than that. It is only the root 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. 🙂
