I have a Problem with the Matlab (2012a Student Version) Activation. The following message pops up when I try to activate:
Error 1,714: Unable to activate your machine. The activation process cannot detect a valid Host ID which utilizes the 'eth' naming convention. Please refer to the following solution ID, to help resolve this issue: 1-661QJD
I refered to the solution ID on the mathworks page. Their way to solve the problem is to rename the
eth device in the
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file by doing the following:
Simply replace the name in the NAME= field to be eth0 and reboot the machine. Once rebooted, the machine should now have an eth0 device.
The problem is, that the device in my persistent net rules file is already called
I have a Dell XPS netbook (and Ubuntu 12.10 on it) which has only wifi (I read somewhere that netbooks dont have an ethN device, which I guess is part of the problem).
