I installed minimal version of fedora. Now how can I install vim in fedora. I have the packages for vim. But while I want to install it says A exception is occurred. Now I want to install vim directly from Internet.

What exactly fails if you do "yum install vim-minimal"? – vonbrand Jan 15 '13 at 18:47

From what I remember:

yum -i vim

You will need vim-enhanced package if want build with all the bells and whistles or vim-minimal if you want to keep your system as small as possible.
