I am using the Vi editor on my desktop Ubuntu 12.04, and do no have any problems. But a few days ago, I installed the Vi editor to my beagleboard-xm which has both Angstrom and Ubuntu 12.04 available but noticed that I cannot activate the insert mode at both of the Op. Systems. How I understood that:
When I press i or I, I do not get a warning on the bottom, just
-- INSERT --. But if I continue and if I press k, the cursor moves to the line above, and if I press j, the cursor moves to the line below. If I try to put a # to comment out something, the cursor moves randomly and according to warning written at the bottom: "search hit TOP, continuing at BOTTOM", etc. etc.
How can I get into insert mode? Any suggestions?
