I've just completed a fresh install of CentOS v. 5, and on boot-up I'm getting this:

Inable to start udev

Any ideas what the solution to this is?

Thanks

I ran into a similar problem on a new install a while back. It was an issue with the BIOS on the motherboard I was using. Which is listed below:

Intel Desktop Board D915GAV/D915PGN

What I did to fix it required updating the BIOS to the latest version. Which I was able to get from Intel's support site. Might be worth a try.

Let me know if this helped or post any questions you might have.

Interesting. This is an Intel board as well.

I've never done a BIOS upgrade. This could be interesting.

The problem I see is that the Intel download is an .exe, and oviously I'm not running Windows.

Am I going to have to load Windows just to upgrade the bios?

I did have a windows machine available to me. However windows is only needed to extract the contents of the exe file which I think is a self extracting archive of the files needed to do the bios update. If I remember the exe file gives you what is needed to build a bootable disk, which in turn would be used to boot and run the bios update. On Intels site they should have instructions for this process. Or maybe it was a readme in the exe file.
