Sudo: broken pipe


Whenever I try to run anything as sudo I get the following error.

___________________________________________________________________

[danny@Tri-x ~]$ sudo '/home/danny/Desktop/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8774-pkg1.run'
Password:
Broken pipe
[danny@Tri-x ~]$
___________________________________________________________________

This applies to anything that I use with the sudo command, can anyone ever help me?

What distribution? Do you have a space after 'sudo'? Did you read the man page for sudo? Are the permissions on the file set properly?
