I'm running vim (7.0.237) after sshing to a remote CentOS box, and it just won't enter visual mode.
When I press 'v', it just beeps and does nothing.
I'm running Ubuntu with GNOME Terminal, and the local copy of vi works fine, so I don't see how this could be a problem with the terminal. I have the same .vimrc file on the local and remote machines, and the only settings are: set nocompatible; set tabstop=4.
I'm at a total loss here, any ideas?
