Inspiron 9400 freezes when enabling bfe0
I just got me a brand new Dell Inspiron 9400 Notebook, Intel Dual
Core. I installed 1.9-Devel without problems, but noticed the keyboard
rsp. console freezes with ACPI enabled.
Not a big deal, though, booting without ACPI enabled does the trick,
but what really bothers me: when I try to" ifconfig UP" the internal
network card (Broadcom Chipset), the whole system freezes immediately.
The same holds true after starting dhclient; in fact, any attempt to
UP bfe0 causes a freeze.
I admit I was too lazy to check this group if this is a known issue,
so if it is, maybe somebody can point me in the right direction. As
far as I glanced through the topics, I believe it might be related to
I flashed the Notbook with the latest available BIOS (A09), but still
everything freezes as soon as the network card gets involved (tried
1.9-Devel & 1.8.1-REL).
Anyway, if this is not a known issue, I can provide any dump files
that might help solve this annoying problem, just let me know what you
need & what else I can do/try.
Thanx in advance
P.S. I tried the whole common variety of things-to-try, like disabling
dual-core in BIOS, etc. without success.
