Look at the instructions on the YiPs wiki:

Once you get the RPM scripts set up and install the Package Manager, you
will find the vim-common, vim-enhanced, vim-minimal, and vim-X11 binaries
in the GetXedit group under editors.

vim on POWER specifically IBM i


I have been searching for a binary install so I can run vim editor from
an ssh session (putty) on IBM i. Upon searching the internet there are
lots of hits for AIX but I have yet to find a place where PASE
compatible binaries are found.

Any ideas?

(on a quest to get real unix bitheads to like the IBM i platform.....
this seems to be one of the biggest roadblocks)
