Hi mic
You will have to place your  macchanger  command in a script that runs at startup.

Hi Rich.
That is, it is normal for macchanger?

Can I ask you for some link to the script creation guide ... and where to put it ?!

Hi mic
To the best of my knowledge, all network devices have their MAC address hardcoded in firmware and will revert to
that address when rebooted.

For Tinycore, create a file in  /home/tc/.X.d/  containing the following:
Code: [Select]
sudo ifconfig eth0 down
sudo macchanger -m xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx eth0
sudo ifconfig eth0 up

For Lubuntu, I don't know. It's a little dated, but maybe this will help:

Hi mic
If the system uses  ifconfig  to bring up the network, the  hw ether  option can also set the MAC address:
Code: [Select]
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.45 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 hw ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx up

Hi Rich.
18.4 LTS   uses  "ip"  (  sudo ip link set dev name address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX  )  ( but i thought macchanger is setting the address permanently!  )
