I immediately grabbed the new rpms from update.redhat.com, followed the
instructions and got:

glibc

execution of glibc-devel-2.1.3-19 script failed, exit status 0

I am now well and truly screwed.  I can run ls, but ls -l fails with a
"Segmentation fault" as do many other commands, so I can't even look to
see if I've got any zero length lib files.

I am (I was) running:

Red Hat Linux release 6.2 (Zoot)
Kernel 2.2.16-3 on an i686

Any suggestions?

        thanks,
        bob
