AK> Good day!

AK> Sorry about my stupid questions, but i can't resolve my problem by
AK> myself. I've read a lot of pages and FAQs but can't do this:

AK> I have Intel PRO/1000 Network Card on Albatron motherb PX865PE ProII
AK> oard with Inter 82865PE chipset.

AK> After boot network card doesn't work. I think it's something with
AK> interrupts. It only works when I disable ACPI in device.hints. The the
AK> card uses IRQ18 and all is ok.

AK> I've shitched resources in BIOS in thousands combinations - it's all
AK> the same.

AK> I need ACPI for HT pseudo-dual processing.

AK> There are two logs attached - with ACPI and without

AK> Thank you if you can help me.

AK>  Hello Ighor,

AK> I had an Intel 865PERL Board + P4 3.0 800 HTT CPU
AK> 5.2.1 always crashed because some ACPI compatibility problem...

AK> I upgraded to a 5.2 Current which solved the ACPI issues.

AK> Replaced that board to a ASUS p4c800-e deluxe which never had any problem
AK> since..

AK> Try firmware upgrade on the motherboard or try test with Current

AK> Best regards,

I've changed motherboard to Albatron on i865PE and 3Com NIC (xl
Now it says:
Sep  7 18:49:23  kernel: pci0: <serial bus, USB> at device 29.7 (no driver attached)

Sep  7 18:49:23  kernel: xl0: no PHY found!
Sep  7 18:49:23  kernel: device_probe_and_attach: xl0 attach returned 6

And still does not work.

Hardware is 100% ok.

I'm panic.
