comment vim's vimrc messes up vim completely
@ap0, but you are not the OP, right? As an admin you want all your users to have the same settings, as the single user of his own machine he only wants himself to have his own settings.

1. Download MacVim and put it in your /Applications directory. 2. Put the mvim script that was in the archive somewhere in your PATH. 3. Remove anything in ~/.vimrc and ~/.vim/ that was not installed by you.

comment VIM Crashes/Freezes on specific files Mac OSX Mavericks
The root issue, here, is that you use someone else's vimrc and plugins: it may work for him but you are not him and you are supposed to configure your environment. One immediate benefit of configuring your environment yourself is that you control what goes in and what goes out. When something surprising happens it's easy to find out how and why it happens. The way you installed vim, too, is a bit cowboyish. Anyway, can you provide more info on your system and a link to te offending file?

Could you paste /root/.marslo/myprograms/vim74/share/vim/vim74/syntax/synload.vim?

1. This should never happen and the person responsible for that mess should be hanged. 2. If you log in as root you can do anything, including creating a new user with his own $HOME. What's wrong with your configuration is… everything. You put your .vim directory in a non-standard place, you put Vim itself in a non-standard place, you introduce even more chaos by messing with runtimepath… the whole thing is a mess that can't and shouldn't be fixed. Install Vim system-wide, create a normal user for login, put your stuff where it belongs and don't mess with runtimepath.

OK, why do you put all your stuff in subdirectories of /root/ instead of /home/username/? That's… beyond stupid.

Your sysadmin should be sacked. What is the final value of your runtimepath? It looks like a mess to me.

What is your reason for not putting your stuff in its normal location?

comment Linux, vim and ssh: why is vsplit slow?
Are you, by any chance, using jk or <Down><Up>? Those keys are not for scrolling: use proper commands, see :help scrolling. Anyway, "scrolling" can be affected by many things like redrawing speed, network issues, wrapping, syntax highlighting, syntax-based folding, relative numbers…

comment getting clipboard support for vim
No, of course not. As long it's really your .vimrc, in your $HOME.
