Slackware 14.0 install hangs at udevadm
I am attempting to install Slackware 14.0 on a desktop that current runs Slackware 13.0. Trying 32 bit and 64 bit DVDís that were successfully used to install on a laptop, the installation hangs. The last output line:

triggering udev events: /sbin/udevadm trigger --action=add

I have attempted to install the 2 kernels supplied, huge.s and speakup.s without resolve.
Thanks for reading! Any hints or help to get me by this issue?

        if ! /sbin/pidof udevd 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null; then # start udevd
          echo "Starting udevd:  /sbin/udevd --daemon"
          /sbin/udevd --daemon
          # Since udev is just now being started we want to use add events:
          echo "Triggering udev events:  /sbin/udevadm trigger --action=add"
          # Call udevtrigger and udevsettle to do the device configuration:
          /sbin/udevadm trigger --type=subsystems --action=add
          /sbin/udevadm trigger --type=devices --action=add

        else # trigger changes for already running udevd

There's the bit of code around it. That line is info. but it's not working. Maybe try google now that you have the commands that are failing. I might try inserting this line just before it

/usr/bin/pgrep udevd && /usr/bin/cat /proc/mounts >> /tmp/somefile
Then you can read that at your leisure. You should have a file with a 3 or 4 digit number as the first line(s) and the mount points after it. I'd look for tmpfs being mounted. If you don't have the number, udevd isn't running.

Did you try hugesmp.s? If not, at the prompt on the first screen, just hit [Enter], not typing any kernel name.
