USB Network adapter

Any chance to add “Realtek RTL8152/RTL8153 Based USB Ethernet Adapters” kernel module to the next release? Unfortunately I purchased a few of these:®-Ethernet-Network-Adapter/dp/B00ET4KHJ2 which require that module. Currently building my own kernel to support it.


i believe this was done in the 15.07 release already, no? I can see this:



Not that I can see:

$ git checkout -b kernel-15.07 ubuntu-qcom-dragonboard410c-15.07
Switched to a new branch 'kernel-15.07'
$ make defconfig 
*** Default configuration is based on 'defconfig'
# configuration written to .config
$ grep 8152 .config 
# CONFIG_USB_RTL8152 is not set


we added a config fragment in 15.07 release to store non essentials configs that we don’t want to have in ‘defconfig’, so as per the release notes, you now need to do:

make defconfig distro.config

distro.config is a file in ./kernel/configs

Cool thanks.

Is the distro.config what is used for the sdcard release (

yes, the SD card release (or the boot image itself) is using this config.
