http://serverfault.com – I have a centos server that recently needed a fsck repair on it's main hard drive. After fixing a bunch of inode issues (booting from a system rescue disk), the box booted clean. Most of the services are running fine, however the sshd service immediately core dumps when I try to start it. Running gdb /usr/sbin/sshd core.xxx, the last line before it dumps the core is: Reading symbols from /lib/libnss_files.so.2 ... (no debugging available) Loaded symbols for /lib/libnss_files.so.2 Core was generated by `/usr/sbin/sshd'. Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault #0 0x00a0dffc (HowTos)
