I am getting a segmentation fault error while doing sudo su - or sudo su - username in Linux Server (RHEL 4.7).

Can any one help me resolve this issue? Linux server (RHEL 4.7) is a LDAP client.

error is like below:[arvind@testserver1 ~]$ sudo su - Segmentation fault [arvind@testserver1 ~]$ – Arvind Jun 1 '12 at 5:57
Did you installed some non-official packages ? – warl0ck Jun 1 '12 at 7:56
RHEL 4 ships with sudo 1.6.8, so you have sudo -i, which does the same thing. Does that work? – Warren Young Jun 1 '12 at 8:19
