AFAIK, The "unknown bridge resource" is a harmless diagnostic that is 
unrelated to the problem below.

I remember I had this one, too, but unfortunately I don't remember how I 
fixed it. I think it worked after I had reconfigured and compiled my 
kernel. I guess you should double-check that everything is configured 
properly. Try to compile stuff into the kernel directly rather than using 
modules and see if that fixes the problem.

Digitize if possible - Eradicate if necessary!
