At Gumstix, we are working to make sure that we provide netstix computers that work out of the box as a code change has been required till now.

Contact if you would like to send back your netstix and have us make the change noted below.

This seems to be a somewhat common problem... I had the same one. Commenting
out those interface lines works. Another solution I also found to work is to
upgrade to the latest kernel... I upgraded from gumstix-kernel-2.6.21-r1 to
gumstix-kernel-2.6.24-r1 and the problem went away. Unfortunately you will
need a serial con to fix the problem regardless, which is unfortunate if you
didn't order one with your kit.
