You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
It is reproducable when DISPLAY can not be connected (as in the example below,
there is no :15).
But it seems to me that this is not specific only to this case, I saw it in the
graphical prompt sometimes.
[<a href="mailto:imz@shamrock" target="_new">imz@shamrock</a> imz]$ export
[<a href="mailto:imz@shamrock" target="_new">imz@shamrock</a> imz]$ sudo
This is reproducable only when drakconf is run by root.
Unprivileged consolehelper thinks that \"Permission denied\" is the password,
asks password, receives sigpipe, reports it and then segfaults...
The bug is in unprivileged consolehelper only.
