I want to change the mac address of
eth0 of my Raspberry Pi.
I haven't any problems with the
macchanger -A wlan0 works)
General information: I have
- a Raspberry Pi Model B
- with Arch Linux ARM (archlinux-hf-2013-06-06)
# macchanger -A eth0
and get this result
Current MAC: b8:27:eb:bc:d5:fd (Raspberry Pi Foundation) Permanent MAC: 00:00:00:00:00:00 (Xerox Corporation) [ERROR] Could not change MAC: interface up or insufficient permissions: Device or resource busy
# ifconfig eth0 down hw ether 01:02:03:04:05:06
with this error
SIOCSIFHWADDR: Cannot assign requested address
I googled a bit and found this. I think there is someone with the same problem but I can't find a solution.
The question is now: Why i get these error messages (when do macchanger / ifconfig makes such an output?) and maybe what can I do to remove them and finally change the mac address?
