I may have an idea:
go to your personnal preferences (or site configuration) through the menu hidden behind your login name (in the top right),
and deactivate wysiwyg editor and set default text format to text/rest.

The pb may be that it try to use fckeditor which isn't installed on your box.
When using fckeditor, there is no combo to select text format since it's necessary html.
And when fckeditor isn't available or is broken somehow, you usually get a bare text area instead
so it's not obvious at all.

If this is actually the pb, it's a bug, it should not try to use fckeditor when not available.
