NM 1.2.4 had been working fine before the upgrade.


Any troubleshooting suggestions

Hi Thomas,

The patches appear to be working, as the new 1.4.2-1 release that landed in Debian testing is able to randomize both scanning and connections now.

However, it doesn't adhere to what is shown on the nm-settings man page. The assigned-mac-address setting is described as superceding the deprecated cloned-mac-address. But NM will only randomize during connections if cloned-mac-address is used.

wifi.assigned-mac-address=random

...has no effect, but

wifi.cloned-mac-address=random

...does work.

Chris
