comment How to set default file permissions for all folders/files in a directory?
g+s will ensure that new content in the directory will inherit the group ownership. setfacl only changes the chmod, in your case sets the permission to o=rx

Right, then I'll get back to figuring out how netctl works - so educational when stuff doesn't work!

comment Can I create a virtual ethernet interface named eth0?
Ah, thanks. I completely forgot that there are requirements for those things to work. I'll just grab the next one it randomly generates and use that. Is there a way to keep the device persistent across reboots rather than recreating it and setting its address back on boot with a script?

I have a problem. When trying to change the MAC with ip link set dev eth0 address 01:23:45:67:89:ab (While the adapter is down of course) it says RTNETLINK answers: Cannot assign requested address. I also tried installing macchanger, but it returns a similar error. Everything tried as root.

I already tried that, it just messed it all up and my adapters vanished.

@rainbowgoblin No, it checks with the server every time it's started up, so it would just start giving me the "Couldn't get host ID" error again later. Either way derobert's solution was perfect, and doesn't even feel like that much of a workaround.

Right on! Exactly the solution I was hoping for, thank you so much :) It works like a dream.

If you only have a wifi card I just think you'd be out of luck. I talked with a rep about it, but they don't seem to be the ones writing the licensing system. I did tell them that the naming conventions are most likely changing and that they should look into patching the whole thing for better support. you are correct in your suspicions of the cause of the problem with the activation, particularly the issue with the Ethernet adapter name. Unfortunately, it is a limitation of the licensing software that it has to look for an "eth0" in order to find the Host ID of the system

comment How do I make the CLI run on dedicated graphics?
@peterph So you suggest I compile the Intel drivers as a module? Wouldn't that just render me unable to install the AMD drivers in the first place? Of course if I used the KMS thing it should work. Hmm. I'll give it a spin.

@Ignacio I have a feature to disable it completely, and I did that, but it doesn't seem to work. GRUB and the BIOS appears on my AMD monitors as well
