The system is completely up-to-date.

Do you have /tmp mounted with the noexec option?

If so, you may be falling over:

The logrotate package in rawhide fixes that.

That's a good question: running "mount" just shows: /dev/sda3 on /tmp type ext3 (rw)

but /etc/fstab has:
/dev/sda3              /tmp                    ext3    defaults,noexec,nosuid

So does that mean that noexec is enabled even though mount isn't showing it?

I don't know. You could always test it by creating a script in /tmp and seeing if it runs:

$ echo echo Hello > /tmp/testscript
$ chmod +x /tmp/testscript
$ /tmp/testscript

If noexec is set, you'll get:
-bash: /tmp/testscript: Permission denied

If not, you'll get:

I'd change the fstab entry to this anyway:
/dev/sda3 /tmp ext3 noexec,nosuid 1 2

The "defaults" keyword is redundant if you're specifying other options.
