The Segmentation faults imply that you've got disk corruption. Dack up all important data, and then start trying to repair.

With respect to the /proc dir, Only th /proc directory has to exist, and as is announced in your boot messages, this is mounted by the /etc/fstab file. Everything else is created as the system boots up. There is no need for you to rebuild anything else.

You shouldn't need to! the only thing that you require from a RHEL setup as far as I'm aware is that the directory:

/proc

is created. Everything else 'appears' as a result of the kernel and other programs that are running.

Can you provide more details relating to this problem and what is 'missing'?

But what about prior versions to the RHEL i.e redhat 9 and prior to that ?
I am getting the following error message while i am booting my machine.

/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit line 70 35 Segmentation Fault
LC_ALL=C grep -g

/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit line 98 41 segmentation fault
