Description Steven Usdansky 2012-09-22 14:27:59 EDT
Description of problem:
sudo su gives error rather than allowing me to become root

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
100% of the time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo su
Actual results:
bash: [: =: unary operator expected

Expected results:
root prompt in directory that was current when sudo was invoked

Additional info:
downgrading to sudo-1.8.5-4.fc18.x86_64 cleared up the problem
Comment 1 Daniel Kopeček 2013-09-30 09:06:44 EDT
Seems to be fixed in the current version.

[dkopecek@rhws ~]$ sudo su
[root@rhws dkopecek]# rpm -q sudo
