login won't go to shell


Recently my ext4 fs became partially corrupted. I fixed the problem by running fsck.ext4 from a vm on another pc. Now when I try to login to my Raspberry Pi3 it gets stuck at the random motd. To go further I have to send a ctrl-c. Anyone ever have this problem?

Quickest solution would be to reflash it, presuming it is on a mSDHC card, otherwise back up your data & reinstall.

Yes it's possibly broken. You can login to another terminal whilst that one is hung, and check dmesg and /var/log/{messages,syslog} to see if the Kernel's spitting out disk errors or something. If not, you could use strace -p to see what the hung process is doing on the other terminal.

Have you tried changing the .bashrc (or whichever files) to remove the MOTD and any characters after it?

I figured out what was hanging. In my .profile I had a thing for rclone to mount my OneDrive. That was what was hanging up the login. I commented it out for now.
