I messed up my server yesterday, and im not quite sure how to get it straight again. After trying to install SiriProxy by severall guides failing one after the other on the step for rvm and dependencies. I now cant get into my Fedora box anymore. Neither SSH or X seems to load correctly:
Trying to access it thru init 3 / x will result in stopping somewhere during load at desktop. It will let me put my credentials as normal, but then it stops with only the desktop background. Trying to ssh as normal into it gives me the following:
kennhard$ ssh email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org's password: Last login: Mon Feb 18 05:53:46 2013 -bash: warning: setlocale: LC_CTYPE: cannot change locale (UTF-8): No such file or directory ^C-bash: /default: No such file or directory ^CConnection to 192.168.0.201 closed.
Resulting in me having to cancel the connection since nothing happens. It seems like my .bash.rc or something are corrupt for both my root user and local "administrator" account. Also tried accessing the server thry one of the ttys CTRL+ALT+F3, but no go.
How would i proceed to fix this? If I load up the machine in safemode, what logs should i fetch for troubleshooting etc? The problem started while installing and uninstalling rvm. All my cron jobs and headless installations do still work running under both administrator and root user. Such as Webmin, Sopcast, Deluge etc.
