Here you go. Its a link to how you could install gvim on a variety of systems.
And do not make posts in the "Post Here to Contact Site Administrators and Moderators" section. That section is not for asking general questions. As the description clearly says, that section is for "Make Suggestions About Forums, Features, or Content here. Discuss Rules and Guidelines. Get Forum Support Here. (Registered Users Only)".

You have created four general unix topic related threads in that section. Please do not create any more.
