Unhappy after install Slackware 12.1

after installation Slackware 12.1 on my pc, i get the following message:
triggering udev events: /sbin/udev trigger-retry-failed.
This is bug of software or not? Thank you for reply at my answer.

Does the OS completely bootup after the error or does it stall? Can you give full dmesg output or post your logs of this error? Do you have a wireless card perhaps? I've heard of this occurring with the rc.wireless invoking when not needed.

Are you sure that's the message and it's not "Triggering udev events: /sbin/udevtrigger --retry-failed"? If you're getting this message, it's not an error. All it's telling you is that it's running the udevtrigger program, with the option "--retry-failed". Read the man page for udevtrigger, if you want to know what it does..

That's right. .That particular command is run towards the end of the boot sequence.

The next thing you should see is a login prompt. Slackware doesn't boot to the GUI by default.
