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.
Comment 2 Steven Usdansky 2006-10-28 14:06:07 EDT
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.

Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2006-10-29 03:26:35 EST
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
Comment 6 Jim Cornette 2006-10-29 19:09:16 EST
noting the same problem and adding to the CC.
Questioning comment #5. Is this patch going to lead to a newer package release?
Comment 7 Paul Dickson 2006-10-29 22:13:42 EST
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.
Comment 8 Jakub Jelinek 2006-10-30 05:16:34 EST
Should be fixed in glibc-2.5.90-3 in today's rawhide.
