Subject: Fwd: Segmentation Fault with Linux Kernel 2.6.29


Recently I have upgrade my Linux machine from kernel 2.6.26 to After successful upgrade, I am getting couple issues with
kernel 2.6.29.

1. Whenever I use yum application, it gives segmentation fault. For
Example, "yum --help".

2. I use passwd command, it gives the  segmentation fault after t.

[saurabh@...tOS ~]$ passwd
Changing password for user saurabh.
Segmentation fault

3. After booting, whenever I am trying to login through terminal,  the
system ask for login id. After entering login id, it again prompts to
login id instead of password.

As of now, I found these many issues. It could be more than that.

All the above issues are not exist with linux kernel 2.6.26.

Could anyone help me out to resolve these issues?
