Q.  Why isn't vi doing those advanced vim functions?

A.  Seems that vi is from the vim-minimal package.
Its doesn't do the fancy stuff.  I suggest removing this package:

rpm -e --nodeps vim-minimal
That removes vi -- you can still use vim To save typing make a symbolic link.
cd /usr/bin ln -s vim vi
