Bypass yum.

  rpm -V nss-softokn-freebl


  rpm -Uhv --replacepkgs --oldpackage nss-softokn-freebl.....rpm
Well, yeah, I'm expecting to use that as a workaround. (Thanks for
saving me the trouble of trying to remember the --replacepkgs
option. :-)
Ended up using yum reinstall. Didn't change anything.

Are you on 32 or 64 bit? If 64, maybe the libs are incomplete.
32 bit.

Seems odd this hasn't bitten others yet. I'm hoping it doesn't mean the hard disk itself is dying, or that LVM has issues with my setup and is corrupting the file system.
So I checked my command history, and apparently I still thought the
missing file was when I searched for it before, rather
than (erk) So it was probably never missing, which is
comforting to know. Sort of.
Anyway, I ended up commenting all the old file system partitions out
of /etc/fstab and that allows it to boot. That's okay, because I can
mount them by hand once I'm logged in, and I probably should copy all
the files I need in from backup instead of just making them available
where they were.
But I'm going to file a bug on this, I think. Whatever the reason it
won't mount the old stuff during boot, it shouldn't try to drop me to
a shell and then force a reboot because it can't load the file
necessary to allow me to drop to a shell. I had to boot from a rescue
install at one point because the reboot cycle would never end.
