Bug Description

r8152 is used in a thunderbolt-connected docking station and ax88179_178a by an external USB dongle.

Despite having two nics connected i can't install Bionic. :-)

This is probably a subset of the modules to be included when fixing LP: #1503218.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. While running an Ubuntu kernel (not a mainline or third-party kernel) please enter the following command in a terminal window:

There is no need for logs, the modules are missing from the udeb

I built a test kernel with those two modules built into the kernel. The test kernel can be downloaded from:
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~jsalisbury/lp1771823

Can you test this kernel and see if it resolves this bug?

Note about installing test kernels:
• If the test kernel is prior to 4.15(Bionic) you need to install the linux-image and linux-image-extra .deb packages.
• If the test kernel is 4.15(Bionic) or newer, you need to install the linux-modules, linux-modules-extra and linux-image-unsigned .deb packages.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, both devices worked with the kernel, I tested them by booting the kernel in qemu VM and redirecting the USB devices to the VM.

I'm wondering why not just adding the modules to the udebs, but I'm happy with this solution, too.

Thanks for testing. Yes, I'll add those modules to the udebs. I just wanted to have you test those modules before adding them into the udebs.

Next time you can just ask for that, i already tested them by manually loading them to the installer from a pendrive.
