I am running vanilla Fedora Core 1 - test1 for x86_64
running an update system running kernel 2.4.22-1.2166.nptlsmp
The system is a dual opteron pogolinux box with 512M and a IDE RAID 1
from 3ware

I downloaded postgresql-7.4.1-1PGDG.src.rpm
and built it on the system. (rpmbuild --rebuild ...)
and installed the resulting RPM's.  

The database starts and stops normally on install

The psql tool ( as well as createuser/vacuum etc all seg fault)

It appears to be faulting on a kerberos call which is odd because I
don't use kerberos for anything.

Here everything plus a gdb backtrace.
