I am running OSX 10.8.5 (Mountain Lion). When I launch terminal, or a new window/tab within terminal, I don't get my prompt. The last login information gets displayed fine, and my cursor is set (unblinking) below it. Also, the window title bar flashes between "bash" and "uname" for the "active process name" part, dunno what that's about as I've never seen it before. Also, the part that normally lists the current directory name just says "Terminal". I can ctrl+C to get to a prompt, but obviously that's not the expected behavior and it's getting pretty annoying.
I noticed it after I changed my hostname. It was appearing as
ns-117-43 in my prompt; I changed it to
local with scutil but setting it back didn't help. Haven't noticed anything else acting up.
Any advice would be appreciated.
