howtos.random-mac-addr

For some reason, you would like to have a random mac address whenever you startup your gentoo box?

Here is a quick howto:

1. emerge macchanger
2. edit /etc/conf.d/net and add the following line:
mac_eth0="random-full"
That will give you a fully random mac address!
3. reboot & enjoy! haha

For more infomation about /etc/conf.d/net & how to setup various kind of random mac address with the macchanger, please read the file /etc/conf.d/net.example
