I'm really sorry for that spam :( When I was trying to send bugzilla report, I
always got page with bugzilla internal error 500 or something like this (I can
make a screenshot if you like).

Here's the proper bug report:
I'm not able to change MAC address


I'm not able to change MAC addres of my ethernet card via
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file.

I've changed:




and then typed:

[root@X audit]# LANG=C ifdown eth0
Urządzenie eth0 posiada adres MAC inny niż spodziewany, ignoruję.
[root@X audit]# ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:40:F4:31:84:93
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          RX packets:8597 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:6930 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:8219521 (7.8 MiB)  TX bytes:764360 (746.4 KiB)
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0xd000

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:  Mask:
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:1329 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:1329 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:39290 (38.3 KiB)  TX bytes:39290 (38.3 KiB)

[root@X audit]#

which means "Device eth0 has different MAC address than expected, ignoring."

BTW I don't know why, but LANG=C does not work. It still shows messages using
system locale.

As you can see, eth0 is up :/ I also tried to modifying ifcfg-eth0 after "ifdown
eth0". "ifup eth0" works, but network card still have the same MAC addres.

Above steps worked without a glitch in FC3.

Please attach your ifcfg file.

Comment 8 Dawid Gajownik 2005-06-17 03:34:11 EDT
Oh, don't bother. In previous Fedora's versions there was always HWADDR entry
and I had to change it to MACADDR.In FC4 there is MACADDR by default. I didn't
remember which one is correct, so I replaced it with HWADDR.

I'm really sorry that I waste your precious time.
