Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212723
su, sudo are Segmentation fault in normal user.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. $sudo or $su
Log in as root and run the prelink job for the day.
Then retry both.
I found that 'su' started working again, but 'sudo' continued to segfault.
Rob Andrew's suggestion didn't work for me - neither su nor wsudo worked.
Reverting to glibc-2.5-3 did the trick for me.

Any suid/sgid app is broken actually, as a result of
ld.so calls __libc_fcntl that uses SINGLE_THREAD_P before %fs resp. %gs is set
noting the same problem and adding to the CC.
Questioning comment #5. Is this patch going to lead to a newer package release?
dovecot is also getting "killed with signal 11" when I attempt a TLS download of
E-mail. Reverting back to glibc-2.5-3 allowed dovecot to function.
Should be fixed in glibc-2.5.90-3 in today's rawhide.
