I was making some changes to the file system to my Raspberry Pi 1 B+ using the terminal, deleting some unwanted files and when I rebooted the system, it now boots directly to the terminal (rather than the GUI) and will no longer accept input from the keyboard. The warning message it displays is:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::filesystem::filesystem_error'
    what(): boost::filesystem::directory_iterator::construct: Permission denied: "/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/atarilynx/n."("

SSH is enabled and the default password for the 'pi' user has not been changed. This is a security risk - please login as the 'pi' user and type 'passwd' to set a new password.

I'm sure that following the question posted here (Remove SSH warning about default password) will help resolve the SSH password issue, but I'm not sure why I can't even type in commands.

Does anybody know what's going on?
