Hi Thomas,


Oh, I didn't actually test mac-addr-randomization myself :)
I am definitely interested whether it works for you (but I still
it works, if wpa-supplicant has support).
I made further test with another computer, but same OS. I got the
behavior, ie I couldn't randomize my mac address.
That was the occasion to build against a more recent master version

So, you had the right version of wpa-supplicant but it didn't work?
Could you send a logfile of NM with TRACE logging enabled? 

As a side comment, If I use the "unsupported" wpa_supplicant version
the last stable), I cannot connect to the SSID if I ask for
randomization (always) and I have this error: "active connection
before it was initialized". Of course, this doesn't happen if I build
wpa_supplicant from their master branch.

that would be expected, no?

You should also see a message in the logfile:
"Activation: (wifi) couldn't build wireless configuration: 802-11-
wireless: cannot enable mac-randomization due to missing supplicant
This is is what I get on Fedora 23.

If anybody has a chance to test this, I would be happy to hear about
or if you have ideas/instructions to get a better understanding.
