This is probably a duplicate question, but I'm not familiar enough with the login/boot process of CentOS (especially on a VM) to know what to search for.
I'm running CentOS 7 in VirtualBox. I accidentally appended
gnome-terminal to the end of my
~/.bashrc file. So now a terminal window pops up when I log in. That terminal session executes
.bashrc, which opens another window, etc. etc., and I'm flooded with a ton of
gnome-terminal terminal windows.
I'm trying to log into a terminal session without the GUI login (so
gnome-terminal fails), but I can't get it to boot without the GUI. I've tried using the answers to this question, with no success. I get a GUI login every time: How to Boot CentOS in CLI?. Is there another way to edit the grub configuration at boot, or a way to get to a new terminal instance from the GUI login, like Ctrl+Alt+F1 in Ubuntu? (Yes, I tried it. It either doesn't work in CentOS 7, or it doesn't work in a VirtualBox VM.) Or is there some other way I can get a terminal session without a GUI, so I can edit my
.bashrc and fix this mess?
