Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 106218
useradd seg faults
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:58:07 EDT
Description of problem:
useradd (without -D) segfaults
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time, and on two separate RH 9 boxes
Steps to Reproduce:
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
strace to be attached
Created attachment 94918 [details]
output of "strace useradd kde"
rpm -V shadow-utils is empty
After comparing my trace with the trace of a successful useradd on another RH9
box, I conjectured that useradd was incompatible with libsafe. And indeed,
after unsetting LD_PRELOAD, useradd no longer segfaults. But presumably there
code in useradd, which is somewhat worrisome.
Sounds like a dup of bug #89145 (which has a patch)
