I'm getting the following error when I try to run Ubuntu Emulator,

Begin: Running /scripts/init-bottom ... done. [ 10.407868] init: ureadahead main process (399) terminated with status 5

I even tried to install the Ubuntu Touch x86 Emulator but I get the same error. I am using Ubuntu 12.04.

Installing the new Intel graphics driver made my emulator work.

First I installed Stable Open Source Graphic Drivers Updates but I don't think made any changes to my situation.

Then I found an answer on to a question on how to install the drivers. The second answer did it for me which was to install mesa-utils

sudo apt-get install mesa-utils
