Description Michael Catanzaro 2014-10-10 18:05:05 UTC
After installing vim, I guess PackageKit launched it automatically, and my terminal got stuck in a weird state where I couldn't type anything. Note the warning "Input is not from a terminal."

$ vim .config/git/config 
bash: vim: command not found...
Install package 'vim-enhanced' to provide command 'vim'? [N/y] y

The following packages have to be installed:
