Terminal Stalls at Login [duplicate]

Mac OS X Terminal not logging in

When I open my Terminal.app the terminal opens, but nothing shows. The title bar says login, so I assume its a problem with /usr/bin/login.
Confusingly when I restart it works for a bit and then again stops working.


Try changing the session shell in : Preferences -> Start -> Open shells with command : /bin/bash (for example).

  1. Try with the same shell you use normally.
  2. If the problem persists, try with another shell (like /bin/zsh).

With this we should see where is the problem (/usr/bin/login, or .bashrc or any .rc file)
