any clue how to start and fix this issue? (doc pointers welcome)

You're using A8N-VM, right? One of the posts on freebsd-acpi
had a link to the following webpage and you might be interested in it:
http://people.fruitsalad.org/adridg/development.a8nvm.php

Hope that helps.

thanks, that fixes some issues... first of all it seems that my DSL is royally broken, but at least acpi loads.

but i still can't shutdown -p:

AcpiEnterSleepStatePrep failed - AE_NOT_FOUND

:/

cheers

The only chance that AcpiEnterSleepStatePrep() can return AE_NOT_FOUND
would be in AcpiGetSleepTypeData() when it calls AcpiNsEvaluateByName().
Can you try reinstalling the acpi.ko with debugging enabled
$ cd /sys/dev/acpica5
$ export MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=$HOME/obj ACPI_DEBUG=yes
$ make obj && make depend && make
$ su make install

and read the kernel messages on the console after setting the following
sysctl variables and issuing acpiconf -s5:
sysctl debug.acpi.layer="ACPI_NAMESPACE ACPI_HARDWARE"
sysctl debug.acpi.level="ACPI_LV_ERROR ACPI_LV_NAMES"

Cheers.

The "bad character" problem itself has been resolved it seems, but this issue
contains some other problems. Would you like to keep this one open?
