The other day I was trying to reinstall vim on my mac (so I could get it recompiled with the clipboard add-on) and I came across this issue:
You-Air:.ssh you$ brew install vim ==> Downloading http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/v/vim/vim_7.4.430.orig.tar.gz curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found Error: Failed to download resource "vim" Download failed: http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/v/vim/vim_7.4.430.orig.tar.gz
After a couple of minutes looking for possible solutions I realise that brew was pointing to stale urls (doh!).
So running the snippet below should do the trick:
You-Air:.ssh you$ brew update
But wait a second! Reinstalling vim (7.4) still still gets me a -clipboard flag, looks like it was compiled (shame on you Apple!).
You-Air:.ssh juan$ vim --version | grep clipboard -clientserver -clipboard +cmdline_compl +cmdline_hist +cmdline_info +comments -xterm_clipboard -xterm_save
So it’s still pointing to the old 7.3 vim… At this point restarting the terminal will do the trick!
Happy copy and pasting!
