Ethernet issues on power failure
 
I'm currently running Debian Etch (with no GUI) on two boxes and after a power failure the ethernet devices on both machines fail to come back up on the first boot. To solve the problem I have to reboot both machines.
I've given both machines static IPs and I have no trouble with the ethernet devices after the reboot - just on the first boot after the failure.

Anyone got suggestions as to why this might be happening??

Thanks!

Hrm... never heard of that, but ACPI might be doing something funky on a proper shutdown. Maybe try disabling ACPI... in the GRUB config, add the following to your kernel line:

pci=noacpi


And reboot. Then maybe force a power failure (unplug it) and see what happens on reboot.
