I've transcribed the error message:
- Code: Select all
udevd-work: mknod(/dev/pktcdvd/control, 020660, (10,59) failed: Not a directory
Which edition of SL are you trying to boot? KDE? GNOME? Xfce? E17? CoreCDX?
I have no idea what the solution is but, were it to happen to me, I'd try the following:
1. If it's not the KDE or GNOME editions:
a) First I'd try the KDE or GNOME edition, check the md5sum of the ISO, and use UNetbootin to create a LiveUSB (the pen drive's file system must
b) If (a) didn't work, I'd try burning a LiveDVD instead of creating a LiveUSB.
2. If it's not the KDE or GNOME editions, although the error message relates to udev and /dev/pktcdvd I'd suspect the video driver because the closed-source NVIDIA driver is currently missing from the Xfce, E17 and CoreCDX editions (and perhaps the other non-major releases too).
