Description

The MAC addresses should be displayed somewhere on the main page, probably based on the interface selected. This makes it easier for users who use MAC filtering on their routers.

Added mac address field. This is filled in with the mac address if the interface is found in /etc/network/interfaces. However if we find additional interfaces not configured then no mac address is provided.

The fix for this is to merge unconfigured network interfaces with those found in /etc/network/interfaces. The former are currently only kept by name while the latter have a data structure that can hold the mac address (among other things). Se we need the former to also use that data structure so we can grab the mac address even if the interface is not configured.

Completed this coding and tested on the desktop. Now need to try it on the target.

Actions #3

  • Status changed from In Progress to Closed
  • % Done changed from 70 to 100

Test on hardware failed at first due to an esoteric bug that showed up only on ARM (but not Intel). That's fixed now and the mac addresses show up correctly.

Closing the issue.
