I have a FC4 server on which several command result in semgentation faults. These include touch,cp,rpmb Cat /home/user/test > /home/user/test2 and other command that write to log files. work fine.
I think I needs to reinstall coreutils to get it this problem fixed. If there is another way please let me know. In any event I can't use rpm to re-install coreutils as it gives a segmentation fault and yum says coreutils is already installed so "yum install coreutils" doesn't work.
If I try to remove rpm with "yum remove" then it wants to remove yum as well and then I would not be able to install anything!
How can I repair the rpm install without breaking yum? I also thought of removing coreutils with yum and then re-installing but this will remove a ton of packages and I am not sure if yum will work after that.
it seems like the cirular dependency between yum and rpm is a major problem in this case.
