I had this same problem on a Dell Inspiron 6400, which has Broadcom BCM4311 network controller and Broadcom BCM4401-B0 Ethernet controller.
Kernel 5.0.0-27 manifests the problem. Kernels 4.15.0-60 and 5.2.0-15 work fine. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1829310 Title: kernel 5 fails to start systemd-networkd on old Dell Inspiron 1720 To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1829310/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
