USB Network adapter


#1

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

hi,

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

CONFIG_USB_RTL8152=m

cheers

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

hi,

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 (http://builds.96boards.org/releases/dragonboard410c/linaro/ubuntu/latest/dragonboard410c_sdcard_install_ubuntu-80.zip)?


#6

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