I am running Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.7 (Santiago) and about 9:39 my machine started screwing up. It was very busy, but not doing anything much.

After working on some things without success, I tried rebooting the machine, but I could not get it to restart or shutdown. So I powered it down and then restarted it. It sort-of runs, but no sound (though Windows 7 Professional runs the sound just fine). I notice that
/var/log/messages never gets any larger.

I noticed rsyslogd is not running and I tried to start it. I get this message:

root[/etc/rc.d/init.d]# ./rsyslog start
Starting system logger: /sbin/rsyslogd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory [FAILED]

root[/etc/rc.d/init.d]# ldd /sbin/rsyslogd => (0x00007ffe593ee000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f94dea62000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f94de845000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f94de640000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f94de438000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f94de222000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f94dde8d000)
/lib64/ (0x000000328c200000)

Now /lib64/ is there.

jeandavid8[/lib64]$ ls -l libgcc_s*
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 93320 Oct 8 03:42
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 28 Jul 22 12:36 ->

And the link points to where I suppose it should.

jeandavid8[/lib64]$ file libgcc_s* ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, stripped symbolic link to `'

Anyone have any ideas how to debug this?
