I'm also worried that you may now be missing system files.
If you can reinstall, I'd say go that route. If nothing else, boot up
into single user mode and investigate your filesystem. Paste your
/etc/fstab here and we can be more specific -- I'm wondering if your
/tmp or /var is full. If you can get a du -sx /* going, that'll point
you in the right direction.
With the root partition that full, programs that try to use /var or
/tmp (if they're on /) will start croaking.
