TripWire Error on Solaris 8

Greetings All

I'm trying to run a update of a Tripwire database and I get this error.

### Error: Editor was found in the report and will not be executed.
### /usr/bin/vi
### Exiting...

Any Ideas

Thanks in advance

Looks like tripwire is trying to call vi and it is either not present (run: ls -l /usr/bin/vi to check) or has permissions such that the user running tripwire cannot run vi.

Try running:
$ echo ${EDITOR}
If that is pointing to /usr/bin/vi and vi is actually in a different direct then the EDITOR variable will need amending in either ~/.profile or /etc/profile.

Try running:
$ type vi
If it does not return a path to vi then the directory where vi resides needs adding to the user's path again probaly set in either ~/.profile or /etc/profile.
