this process die, so I killed with kill -9
later, I restart my machine and I receive this message..

/ was not cleanly unmounted, check forced.

/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: line 274: 140 segmentation fault grep –E ‘[[:space:]]+/[[space:]]+’ /etc/fstab

Activating swap partitions:

/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: line 339: 159 Segmentation fault grep –iq nomodules /proc/cmdline 2>/dev/null

Mounting local filesystem: [OK]

and here DIE !!

Hi, I'm newbie also, I 've donwlaoded the grep from and I try to install, unfourtonality I can't do this because throw segmentation fault in the "ln" command, so I will try to reinstall ln too.
