Segmentation Fault (core dumped) doing su -
Having an issue when I try and su as a normal user or as root.
disk space is good (have at least a gig in all file systems)

bash-2.03# su -
Segmentation Fault (core dumped)

there is a core placed in /var/core

The box is running solaris 8

I'm not aware of any updates or changes since it worked last.

any ideas?

Have you any information as to what caused the core dump? Check the messages file, there should hopefully be some useful info there. You could also try snooping around the core dump file with SCAT -

At a guess, there might be something wrong with a PAM module but I'm just guessing here.

I beleive SCAT if only for kernel crash analysis. For single application cores like that one here, start by identifying what program crashes and where with:

file core
pstack core

Found out someone removed CA eTrust :rolleyes: from the system. Ended up rebuilding it, felt like eTrust was a virus and the system could not be trusted with remnants remaining. Sometimes I wonder why CA is in business.

i am having the same issue but the thing is that i am trying to change mysql admin password but each time i do it it gives me the same message:
Segmentation Fault (core dumped)
i did run "file core" and "pstack core", but it's like chowing me the command i type to change the password and something like this:
ff33b410 load_defaults (0, 25350, ffbffc6c, ffbffc70, 4, 4) + 158
0001164c main (13800, ffbffc8c, 0, ffbffa08, ffbffd64, 46000) + 48
0001140c _start (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 303030) + 108

how can i change that password without getting this message

If you have the same issue, just fix it by rebuilding CA eTrust as the OP did.
