PS command not working

After upgrading to 6.2a via slices, the PS command to list all running processes is no longer working.
Is there another command I can use?

You can use pgrep to check for a certain process, but I don't know why you'd still have a pgrep binary if you're missing ps. What exactly does "... is no longer working" mean? Did you make sure to copy over your busybox tools?
This is the error.

LivingRm-TiVo# ps -aux
ps: invalid option -- a
BusyBox v1.2.1 (2006.10.29-03:08+0000) multi-call binary

Usage: ps

Report process status

umm... have you tried running with no arguments? the aux is really only needed with an older non-busybox tivo binary, iirc... looks like that one was removed in 6.2.
You can also try ps --help. One possibility is that your ps symlink is linking to another utility other than ps.
