Ah, OK, are you using the newer nvidia gfx driver?
I had a similar thing happen to me on my main Fedora 14 box a few months
ago (I don't recall if it was mythfrontend or not, though): somehow, the
newer nvidia kmdls were causing prelink to cock up. Any running processes
would be unaffected by any overnight run of prelink as they'd continue using
the “virgin” versions, and of course an RPM replacement would briefly “fix” it.
I had hoped that this was a transient fault, but haven't updated since to
test it. I undid the prelink (prelink -a -u) and then disabled prelink
(PRELINKING=no in /etc/sysconfig/prelink): my box is fast enough that I'm
not worried about that.
‘prelink -a -u’ is relatively fast anyway (well, was for me :) ) so could
well be worth trying whatever.
