After entering my username and password when trying to log in, I am not getting the command prompt.
This is what my screen looks like:
pal login: root Password: Last login: Wed Oct 14 15:42:19 on tty1 _
I have searched this problem and doing a CTRL+Z fixes this for other people - Mine does nothing.
Another thing I have tried is CTRL+C. But doing this just prompts me to log in again.
Last time I was logged in, I did add a couple of lines to .bash_profile so is this likely to be the issue?
And does anyone have a fix for this please?
The changes to .bash_profile:
I had added four lines - each were aliases which performed a cd command to a directory which doesn't exist, but I then removed them after spotting this mistake. So I don't think it will be anything to do with this.
I also changed the path variable from this (I think):
I also added this line underneath the path variable line:
I was following some instructions with the above which weren't very clear. Maybe the source .bash_profile line wasn't meant to go there and was meant to entered as a command afterwards?
A snipped from the instructions I followed which I think has caused the problem:
Then update your PATH in your .bash_profile
cd ~ vim .bash_profile PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/usr/lib/semq/bin: source .bash_profile
