Symbolic Links wont work

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I'm trying to move my .vimrc file into my .vim folder. I read that a symbolic link would allow vim to be able to find my .vimrc file. So i go, ln -s ~/.vim/.vimrc ~/.vimrc But all this seems to do is create a empty .vimrc file in my home folder!! What is going on? (HowTos)
