I made a fsck on my Raspberry Pi and now it won't open the terminal (it's opening but there is a black screen and there is no pi@raspberry appearing). SSH opens, but the same thing happens.

.bash_profile only prints the "motd".

How can I fix this? I made many fsck.ext4.


use another linux box to read and backup your favourite files from SD card, then reimage fresh Raspbian build and put files back again, this might be the easiest and fastest way to recover from broken file system.

additional points if you use another, preferably new, SD card for the new image.

  • @user1576186 if you can't get the terminal fixed, you can backup the configs and drop them onto your new install. everything should work exactly as it did before as long as you get all the config files. – Butters Jul 31 '13 at 17:21
