WIRED MAC and IP changes each reboot

I have seen the posts here regarding the WIFI mac address randomization and using:


To prevent this, but my WIRED connection has a different mac address and IP address ecah time it reboots, which is crazy !

How can I prevent this ?

I am almost sure this is not happening on Armbian:

Thanks, I have switched to armbian and it does not have the same problem, but does it support adb shell connection using rockchip-adb ?


Haven’t test that but I don’t see any reason against. Armbian = stock support + value.

rockchip-adb does not appear to be in the updates repos:

# apt install rockchip-adb
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package rockchip-adb

Aha, that package you need to install from Radxa directory. I’ll add it later to the armbian as well.

Here are instructions: http://apt.radxa.com/

Thanks, but there’s no repo setup for buster ???

I tried:

wget -O - apt.radxa.com/buster/public.key | sudo apt-key add -

But that did not work

It is expected that it wont work since you didn’t follow instructions or understand what those steps means. This is the same since ever on all Debian based distros.

Huh ??? - I did follow the instructions, however there are no instructions for buster which I have installed, there are only instructions for stretch.

So does it mean that buster is not supported ?

For Debian Stretch
For Ubuntu Bionic
For Rabian Jessie

Where is

For Rabian Buster ???


This is the guide for Radxa APT sources. https://wiki.radxa.com/RockpiS/radxa-apt

I suggest that you use the latest version of Radxa Debian Buster or Ubuntu Bionic system images. There are not issues of Ethernet MAC and IP changes.

IMO this application should work anywhere. Just use this path:
deb http://apt.radxa.com/stretch/ stretch main

Install was successful but unable to run:
