Angry Redhat 7.3 segmentation fault in rm command


I have just installed a 7.3 server with X and ext3. It ran fine for a while (day or 2). I then started running X and doing some upgrades with RPM and I started getting a segmentation fault on every rm command that was issued in every script making the system unusable. Any thoughts? I haven't found anyting like this on any forum or Bugzilla.

How do you think we can help if you don't supply needed info?
Post history of recent rpm's and dependencies upgraded.
Post errors from those. Run "rpm -Va" to verify all packges are still OK. Run up2date -p and up2date -l to update your package listing with RHN and after that retrieve list of upgrades still waiting.

My apologies. I am unfamiliar with the process. I will collect and post the info. I will not be able to run up2date as the system has been damaged to the point where I am unable to access the net. By the way this is the 3rd time I have installed on this system. Each time I tried to reduce number and types of packages included on each install. Each time the system ended up with the same symptoms. Thinking it was hardware I changed all drives, cables and memory and ran tests on all of the hardware to no avail.

No problem. Does this mean you have errors on bootup as well? If you can't even boot in multi-user mode (runlevel 3 or 5), you can always use the redhat cdrom to boot a shell. Either way try to save the latest /var/log/dmesg or one right after boot, examine it for errors, filter out IP addresses and stuff you don't want to show and post it here if you can.
