Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
coreutils (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: coreutils

I am running (almost) fresh install of Kubuntu 6.0.6. When running the following command from a console as a default user, I get a segmentation fault. The command is

dd if=/dev/urandom of=/home/username/file bs=1M count=10

The output I get is the following:

10+0 records in
10+0 records out
Segmentation fault

If there is any information about my system that can help you, contact me.


what architecture is that?

Yes, it is a duplicate. I apologize.

59624 is a dupe of 42264, so this should be marked as a dupe of 4226 instead
