Manuel,

> How did you get that information?

I have an alias that include all the following commands that I can run to get a summary of system info at a glance.

dmesg | grep -i machine | cut -c40-120
Thecus N2350

uname -a
Linux version 5.2.9-mvebu-tld-1 (root@tldDebianVM) (gcc version 7.4.0 (Ubuntu/Linaro 7.4.0-1ubuntu1~18.04.1)) #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Aug 19 12:47:39 PDT 2019

cat /etc/debian_version
Debian 10.0

cat /proc/cmdline
console=ttyS0,115200 root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10 mtdparts=pxa3xx_nand-0:-(ubifs);spi1.0:0x00400000(uboot),0x00010000@0x00100000(uboot_env),0x00010000@0x00300000(uboot_scr) earlyprintk=serial

fw_printenv uboot_version  # I usually set u-uboot_version env so I can tell from Debian which version I've installed)
uboot_version=U-Boot 2013.01 (Nov 12 2018 - 20:56:19) Marvell version: 2015_T1.0p18-tld-4

I always have persistent MAC address on this Thecus N2350 box since we added the alias eth0 to the DTS!

So it is still a mystery why we have the same box, same kernel but the MAC address behavior is different :)
