I just got a cheap "Quickshot MIDI Composer" MIDI keyboard and plugged it
into my RME HDSP/MultifaceII. I had the keyboard powered on at boot and
udev took longer than usual and then said "FAILED" and stops the entire
boot process. I have no idea what to do, as I am a noob.

The frightening thing is that I need to export four hours of High School
choir and band recordings that I did with Ardour and need to be done
tomorrow by 8:00a.m. or I won't get paid and the students won't have a CD
to take with them as they finish the year.

I need to get this done tonight but my system won't boot past "starting udev"

If anyone knows what to try, THANK YOU!
