HI there!

This could be a very stupid question... Please don't laugh at me!

Usually, when I opened Terminal, a window opened with some text like (I don't remember exactly) ssh#2... or/and You have mail... or/and My web address... etc, etc...

I used to enter sudo su
I was then asked for my password which I entered and then I was able to enter commands.

Now, a window opens with only the cursor and when I enter a command, nothing happens !!!!!

How can I be back to the window I used to work with?

Thanks in advance for your help"

Gerard


PS : I didn't change anything in Terminal Preferences

Thanks mike for replying!

I wasn't doing anything special...

I deleted the preferences file of Terminal and restarted.
Everything is A-Okay by now.

Problem is: Why did it happenned?
Perhaps it will remain a mystery!

well, without knowing what commands were issued.. it probably will! No matter though, sounds like it's fixed!
