I somehow managed to get my freetalk into vi-mode. I'm just unsure how I did it (if I restart freetalk I get an emacs-mode).

Anyone an idea?

According to the freetalk documentation, it uses GNU Readline for its line editing features.

According to the GNU Readline documentation:

In order to switch interactively between emacs and vi editing modes, use the command M-C-j (bound to emacs-editing-mode when in vi mode and to vi-editing-mode in emacs mode). The Readline default is emacs mode.

Perhaps you have accidentally hit this keyboard shortcut: M-C-j. For those not familiar with the notation, this usually refers to ALT + CTRL + j. Pressing this key combination again should return you to emacs mode.
