I'm running the following command from the shell and I get a core dump and an error. It looks like there is a problem with the glibc module. Not sure if that means it did not compile properly or is damaged or if that means there is a memory problem. Here is the command I am running and the error:

[email protected] [/home/bbentley]# grep -lir "/home/virtual" *
*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x09421b38 ***
Aborted (core dumped)
[email protected] [/home/bbentley]#

Anybody have any ideas?

I ran /scripts/cpup --force to force a download of the latest files. I wasn't sure if that included any files needed to rebuild glibc. Can someone provide guidance on that?

Thank you
