rc.local runs last. What I was suggesting is that it might take time for the WLAN to connect to the network, during which time the bootup process has continued, and perhaps rc.local has run before the network is connected (which might still be taking place, using the actual "old" MAC address).
ok got ya now. I do know attaching
MACADDR=00:11:22:33:44:55" to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0
works but only for 1 reboot. after the 1 reboot. its back to the old mac how can I get this or macchanger -r to work on every reboot. or am I just boned.
also again another light lockup happened (lost mouse control) thought maybe it was a KDE issue but its still continuing on LXDE (pclos lxde is the best lxde version ive ever seen no joke)
when this happens before i caught
usb 2-5: USB disconnect, address 2
in dmesg. that was under kde. sadly that is not in dmesg now..
I have started to see the following in dmesg on lxde
pcmanfm: segfault at aaaaaae2 ip 45964dda sp bf8fcc00 error 4 in libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.2400.4[456f7000+45d000]
ld-linux.so.2: segfault at 74799315 ip 44af8be4 sp bfc29ea0 error 6 in ld-2.13.so[44aee000+1a000]
idk why but I have a hunch is nvidia drivers causing it. I see in synaptic these are installed
the mouse issue is a real pain.
