I am still able to log in by using this trick (hit
Ctrl+C before the .bashrc will be fully executed). But how do I restore it to the default
I’m running CentOS 6.5 x86_64. If the default bashrc file is there in the distribution somewhere, I cannot find it.
Move the damaged file out of the way, then reinstall the package that provides the damaged file.
mv /etc/bashrc /etc/bashrc.damaged yum reinstall $(rpm -qf /etc/bashrc)
