Whenever I use vim command, I get this error:

Error detected while processing /Users/boss/.vimrc:
line    6:
E484: Can't open file /usr/share/vim/vim73/syntax/syntax.vim
Press ENTER or type command to continue

Whenever I try to do an ls command:

ls: /usr/share/vim/vim73/syntax/: No such file or directory

I found that the directory: /usr/share/vim/vim73/ doesn't exist! However, I found that the I have vim74 instead of vim73 (/usr/share/vim/vim74/).

How do I fix this?


Check file /Users/boss/.vimrc in 6 line probably in this line configured connection with syntax.vim from wrong pathy (for example from the old version of vim) I suspect that the problem is caused by an update vim.

You can try update this path to /usr/share/vim/vim74/syntax/syntax.vim or $VIMRUNTIME/syntax/syntax.vim (if it variable correct defined). But pervously check that syntax definition file exists.
