thanks for replay.
Reinstalling is not the first thing you should do when you encounter a problem.
"ps" is not "bash", but another program. If bash was faulty, then upgrade it to the newest, or use "man" like mabus92920
said -or- goto http://man.linuxquestions.org
instead, because you might not be using "ps" the way you think you are. For example, "ps" on Solaris works different than "ps" on my mandrake 10 laptop probably because of the shell or whatever (i don't know why, i just know that i have to use "-aux" on linux and "-ef" on Solaris to get the same thing)
