VI Editor set number
  

I have a member in / home / xyz as called .exrc and its content is : 'set name'. It is assumed by default to allow a line number in the vi editor for editing new and existing members. But it does not work. Wondering if I'm missing something. Any ideas?

Re: VI Editor set number

Are you using vim? If not which version of vi editor are you using? Are you sure it is .exrc and not any other file that vi is loading? Check the version and post back...

Try logging into the system if you are on an administrator account if you are on a normal user account. If you are doing it as root, try it the other way, that is with a normal user. May be that could help, i have tried it before, but i don't know which way it worked...
