We updated smp kernel on a Sun V20Z AMD Opteron Scsi device.
After installation we tried grub-install /dev/sda and we got

/sbin/grub-install: line 475: 4041 Segmentation fault 

[root at cict-009 ~]# uname -a
Linux 2.6.10-1.741_FC3smp #1 SMP Thu Jan 13 16:58:29 EST 2005 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root at cict-009 ~]# grub-install /dev/sda
/sbin/grub-install: line 475:  4041 Segmentation fault      $grub_shell --batch $no_floppy --device-map=$device_map  >$log_file <<EOF
root $root_drive
setup $force_lba --stage2=$grubdir/stage2 --prefix=$grub_prefix $install_drive

Installation finished. No error reported.
This is the contents of the device map /boot/grub/
Check if this is correct or not. If any of the lines is incorrect,
fix it and re-run the script `grub-install'.

# this device map was generated by anaconda
(fd0)     /dev/fd0
(hd0)     /dev/sda

Any idea.
