Hi,

I've got some serious strangeness being caused by ACPI on 2.6.6.

2.6.3 works perfectly on the same machine. I don't use any acpi option on the 
kernel command line so it's just using the default options.

The first problem is that a strange device appears as eth0:

eth0      Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 
00-90-F5-00-00-22-91-25-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

It seems to be some incarnation of the real ethernet adaptor, but even when I 
manually configure it it is unable to actually talk to the network.
I can configure the real ethernet adaptor (8139too) as eth1 with no problems.

Also, for some reason the loopback device is not added to the routing table 
which in turn causes a stack more problems.
Lots of other stuff also doesn't work including X.

But if I boot 2.6.3 or set acpi=off for 2.6.6 everything works perfectly. The 
same problems exist in 2.6.5 but I haven't tried 2.6.4.

I've attached my dmesg and .config - let me know what else is needed.

Thanks,
David.

This is not a ACPI problem. Here's the culprit:

CONFIG_IEEE1394_ETH1394=m

The IEEE1394 ethernet module is loaded and is now eth0. Tell tail sings
are the long MAC address and the Link encap. which is set to
unspecified.

Could you clarify that a bit? Why is this correct behaviour on 2.6.6 and 
not 2.6.3? Actually, if there's no adaptor I wouldn't think the module 
would be loaded, and if there is I would hope it would be configured 
usefully.

I do understand why loading would cause problems, my question is why 
loading is correct on this system, and why ACPI is doing so now and not 
in 2.6.3.
