Rock Pi S mac address not unique

Hi,
Rock Pi S mac address not unique.
I tried setting mac id in uboot i got error.
=> setenv ethaddr 12:A1:34:2C:41:2C
## Error: Can’t overwrite “ethaddr”
## Error inserting “ethaddr” variable, errno=1
=>
How can i change mac id ?

Thanks & Regards

You might want to look at the macchanger package in Debian.

Hi,

Are you referring the ethernet mac address or the wifi mac address?

We have fixed this I think. See the changelog here:
