Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

So I'm trying to install 11.04 since I've been a fan since 9.04. But both, when starting the live CD, and when installing inside windows I get an error at boot up:

Udevadm settle - timeout of 180 seconds reached,the event queue contains:
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/0000:02:00.0 (919)
udevd [68]:worker [85] unexpectedly returned with status 0x0100

udevd [68]:worker [85] failed while handling '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/0000:02:00.0'

And thats the entire error. I'm not an expert but it might have something to do with the new graphics card I installed a while ago. It's an ATI radeon 5250. I've heard that people are having problems with it.

So hopefully somebody in the community will have an answer to the problem as I have been wanting to get back into linux for a while now after being with windows 7 for about a year now. This error stopped me doing so.

I've tried installing in a few different ways:

  • CDS
  • DVDs
  • USB drives
  • installing it inside Windows (Wubi)
