For some reason, upgrading procps from version 1.0.6 to 1.0.7 solved the
problem. I can now run both ps and top without fail.

Did the VM change in 2.4.10 have anything to do with this?

Still puzzled ...



1. Kernel compilation failed 2.4.14

This is a known bug.

The following patch fixes it:

--- linux-2.4.14-broken/drivers/block/loop.c    Thu Oct 25 13:58:34 2001

                pos += size;
-               deactivate_page(page);

-       deactivate_page(page);
        return -1;
