You haven't said anything about your system, your configuration, or your
situation so it's hard to give any useful advice.  It looks like you
are getting a login prompt before the system in in full multi-user mode.
Perhaps your default boot is into single-user mode or you're getting an
error that requires an fsck perhaps.  Can you get to multi-user mode
and see if you can do a user login from there?  Otherwise, what's the
output of '/sbin/runlevel'?
