    Default Booting Backtrack from disk

    I tried to run Backtrack from a CD I downloaded but it doesnt go past this message "triggering udev events:/sbin/ud evtrigger. Can anyone help please?
    My OS is Ubuntu.

    You're os doesn't matter, since backtrack doesn't use the drive. Did you check the md5 before you burned the cd? What kind of computer are you booting?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    I presume you have old hardware.
    Try to boot with the option "nohotplug" and check this thread:

    It seems you didn't check the link in my last post..............

    On the "working" hardware (IBM PC) initiate xconf and then startx.

    Did you try to boot on your Apire PC with different boot options (e.g. nohotplug)?

    The boot process stalled at "triggering udev events/sbin/udevtrigger" error,I could not use the options you mentioned. They worked fine on the IBM pc.

    Argh...you mentioned this in your 1st post.
    Again, try to boot with the nohotplug option.

    I recommend you check these threads:

    Default nohotplug

    I tried pressing the tab button and typing noapicacpi=off ,but to no avail. It still hangs at exactly the same place. I am sorry to be asking such basic questions but how do you boot with the nohotplug option. I dont see this as an option anywhere. I have trolled this site and the web looking for an answer.
