tsg,

yes, but i formatted the / partition... it's not the first time i've done so but i don't think i've ever tried to "import" my old /usr before. i'm thinking that it's got something to do with it.

also, running /bin/ftp under my id works as intended

/usr is on /dev/sda4 (the 8th line down). it's mounted by /etc/fstab at boot

I can't have any idea.
Well, I'll pay attention to it and hope someone can give the solution.

If you have not already done so, you can drop into runlevel 1, login as root, and then run "jfs_fsck /dev/sda4" and see if that reports (and fixes) any problems.

I had similar very funky behavior with an xfs filesystem that had been corrupted due to memory problems. I had to repair the file system to make the funkiness go away.

Richard,

fortunately the re-install fixed the problem. thanks for the input though! (i love how fast i can be up and running again, by the way... Slackware rocks!)

I had a feeling the install over top of Mandriva might be the issue. Slackware doesn't even like installs over top of old Slackware installations.
