Upon opening vi, the terminal scrambles text; here's an example of creating a new file:-
drawkcab txt eht si ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
All the tilde characters are already there, and as you can see, the text output is backward.
When entering command mode, all the text disappears and what should then be commands entered at the bottom-left of the screen are positioned top-left
Name : vi
Version : 050325-1
GNU charlie 0.3 GNU-Mach 1.3.99/Hurd-0.3 i386-AT386 GNU
This has never worked. I'll add that nano does, but I'm a vi fan.
