Re: MacVim through MacPorts problems
- My original post was about two problems:
1) MacPorts ignored what was already installed
2) I had two vims, and the original complained about missing features
triggered trough my .vimrc
Both these problems are solved and I'd like to share my current setup.
For starters, I have removed the MacPorts version of MacVim. I then
installed MacVim from http://code.google.com/p/macvim/ which of course
still left me with two different vims.
I symlinked /usr/bin/vim to /opt/local/bin/vim to solve that problem.
(note that ':h macvim-start' refers to /usr/local/bin/mvim, where my
original mvim is in /opt/local/bin)
I added a 'wait' clause the mvim script to be able to create a gwait
symlink and specify that as editor for e.g. the "it's all text"
extension which I use in FireFox to edit my gmail:
% diff -u /opt/local/bin/mvim.orig ./mymvim
--- /opt/local/bin/mvim.orig 2010-11-30 18:31:26.000000000 +0100
+++ ./mymvim 2010-12-14 13:54:55.000000000 +0100

+ opts="$opts -f"
I think that this should be in the default mvim file (ignore the file
dates on the diff output, they're not correct)
Being a keyboard maniac, I have v, view, vim, vimdiff, g, gview,
gviewdiff, gvim, gvimdiff as well as gwait symlinks that all link to
the same mymvim (i.e. original mvim edited cfr supra)
This setup is quite satisfactory, and maybe it does inspire others.
