[Guide] vi cursor keys are screwed up!

This is a very simple guide, but if you not familiar with bash, or ssh do not try it,

I accept no responsibility of damage to your hardware or software setup, this will void your warrenty etc blah blah blah. 

If you don’t know what vi is, then this will not concern you. 

The vi editor in mycloud is slightly screwed up when trying to navigate when in insert mode.

To fix this, do the following:

vi ~/.vimrc

add the following line and save it

set nocompatible

such that the file is like below:

cat ~/.vimrc
set nocompatible


Now cursor keys should behave themselves when editing using vi ,

and the world now a nicer place (at least in the NAS env).


Thanks for sharing.

You might want to edit your post and add a disclaimer for the users to do this on their own risk.
