I only skimmed the thread (a bit busy with that work stuff :) but is /proc
mounted? All sorts of things will break if it is not. Execute the
command /sbin/mount to see the currently mounted filesystems. If it fails
then /proc is probably not mounted. Commands like ps and various others
will fails with strange errors if /proc is not mounted.
Check your /etc/fstab file. Does it have an entry like:
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
Might not be the problem but worth ruling out.
