figure out what parts of X i did not have. But when I compiled elvis
on another machine running fedora core 3 (fc3)it worked without any
arguments, just ./configre --with-x linux! But I prefer the console
version and that compiled fine on a later installation of fedora core
I still run Mandrake on this dual boot machine and the above did not
work, so I tinkered with the console version of elvis instead, since
I like that one more. Now Mandrake 10.1 could not compile that due to
that it could not find lcurses. Urpmi updates did not help. Via a
(http://packages.debian.org/unstable/editors/elvis-console) i reconned
that that I had to point libs to libncurses. On my Mandrake machine
that is libncurses.so.5.4 (found via 'locate libncurses'). The
following line compiled elvis without errors (though it could not find
where to put the man pages).
./configure --verbose --without-x --libs='/lib/libncurses.so.5.4' linux
Now I have elvis in a console like I want it and can finally do
without vim. Thanks for your advice and hope this can help someone else.
