           Summary: su caused segfault
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: Branch_GCC4
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: randy at linuxfromscratch.org

Wow! This I did not expect. Here is the screen output:

rml at rmlinux: ~/build/Build-System/Sources > su
Password: 
Segmentation fault
rml at rmlinux: ~/build/Build-System/Sources > 

The problem is if you do not enter the correct password. This may be a PAM
issue as this system has PAM installed. However, this system is built no
differently than any of the other LFS systems I've built, almost all of
which have PAM.

Using GCC4 branch and latest Shadow/Pam packages.

BTW - entering the right password works with no issues. Took me a week to 
type the wrong password once. :-)
