easy question: jellow column using vim

on RH7.3 installed rpm's

logging with ssh and editing a file with vi I can see on the left , actually the first column an annoying yellow line.
How can I disable colors ( if not only the yellow line) when I use vi?

Re: easy question: jellow column using vim

I dont have the correct answer. These are controlled by xterm-color. You may experiment some of them to suit your taste. check vim help pages.

Re: easy question: jellow column using vim

I have not run into the same yellow line problem, so I don't know exactly what to change for you. Here is my .vimrc and the vi alias I use. I prefer gvim ;)

alias vi='gvim -geom 98x65 -rv -font 8x13'

[dave@mercury] ~$ cat .vimrc
set autoindent
set ul=100
set tabstop=8 sw=4 softtabstop=4 smarttab expandtab
set ai showmatch hidden incsearch ignorecase smartcase smartindent hlsearch
set history=100
set nocp
set vb
source $VIMRUNTIME/syntax/python.vim
source $VIMRUNTIME/indent/python.vim

syntax on

[dave@mercury] ~$

Like I said I don't have any yellow line issues.

I hope that helps,

Not really sure what you are seeing, but you could try:

:syn off

in your .vimrc file
