Closing, no info in bug report.
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
and then typed:
[root@X audit]# LANG=C ifdown eth0
UrzÄdzenie eth0 posiada adres MAC inny niÅ¼ spodziewany, ignorujÄ.
[root@X audit]# ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:F4:31:84:93

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
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.

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.
