Many of the commands that you use in bash are built-ins. You can use the 'help' command for information about them. For example: 'help for' to learn about the 'for' command. You can use the command 'type' to determine whether a command is built-in or not. Some commands are both, depending on which you want to use.

Also, please look at the man page for 'ps'. There are seperate '-a' and 'a' options. Also the 'x' options shouldn't use a '-' hyphen.

Try 'ps -a x' or 'ps ax' instead depending on what you want.

Also, look in the users and groups setup. You may be using a different default shell rather than bash.

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)
