Google Music Manager - Could not identify my computer

Hi,

Google Music Manager worked for me (x86_64) before but I didn't use it for a while and now after an update I get the message

"Login failed. Could not identify your computer"

I've read in a Fedora forum to add biosdevname=0 to the kernel line but this doesn't work here (does this even apply to Arch?).

Any ideas? The password is correct and I can log in through the web interface. I also tried to delete the music manager folder under ~/.config.

Re: Google Music Manager - Could not identify my computer

Same problem here. I've never tried Google Music before but now have 1.0.18 installed from the AUR (on an x64 system). I'm using Google's two-factor authentication, but I can't login via the Music Manager with either my standard password or an application-specific one.

Re: Google Music Manager - Could not identify my computer

same here, Arch 64 bit, wireless (wlan0) with 2-step password verification. Have tried every single solution suggested on the forums

* editing .config/google-musicmanager/Peer.db with sqllite, adding a record pair of
MachineIdentifier = 00:24:d7:8c:3c:d4

* adding kernel boot option biosdevname=0 to /boot/grub/menu.lst

* starting manager with -p [my2steppwdprhase]


It's all the same, "could not identify my computer", even when I enter wrong password. The log file

Re: Google Music Manager - Could not identify my computer

The problem has appeared again with the renaming of the interfaces with systemd 197...

Re: Google Music Manager - Could not identify my computer

So I read on Kay Siever's g+ page that google music manager uses MAC addresses and network interface ids to identify your computer (stooopid I know).  So I changed my network naming scheme back to the old system (eth0 and wlan0) and lo and behold, the f*cking thing works again.  It is too bad because I actually rather liked the built in persistent naming scheme.

Anyway, hopefully this might help someone, as it is unfortunately the only way I have found to upload my music to google play.

Can you please tell me how you did it or point me to a guide that explains the renaming process?

Also... if anyone knows... Why is the naming scheme changed? Is there any consequence in going back to the old scheme?

Thank you so much in advance...

Re: Google Music Manager - Could not identify my computer

This has been covered many times throughout these forums and in the wiki.  But basically it is for instances in which more than one of the same kind of network card are present, and therefore creates persistent network interfaces.

You need to mask 80-net-name-slot.rules.

Re: Google Music Manager - Could not identify my computer

thank you so much! your hint pointed me in the right direction...
Giving the command:

ln -s /dev/null /etc/udev/rules.d/80-net-name-slot.rules

and rebooting did revert to the old naming scheme.
This is the only thing needed for current Google Music Manager version to work.

Thank you again!

Yeah, no problem.  It really rather pissed me off that GMM sucks so much.

Re: Google Music Manager - Could not identify my computer

I only have one song to add currently, but am embroiled in an ongoing conversation with Google Play help about this exact issue. I'll keep pressing them to identify my computer by the new naming scheme or through other means. If it works, I'll let you all know.

Re: Google Music Manager - Could not identify my computer

I was informed that the new method of interface naming would be passed along to the developers responsible for the Google Music Manager.

Was able to get it working, like others here, by creating the /dev/null symlink for the udev rules.

Good work papabean... though I am not sure how this was seen as a reasonable design decision in the first place.

They meant to lock out multiple instances on the same computer by denying to work on virtual machines.
But I still don't understand why.

Re: Google Music Manager - Could not identify my computer

Well, it's not over yet and future versions may work out-of-the-box (well, out-of-the-AUR). The latest version of the Music Manager correctly parses the network names, but still fails to recognize the computer correctly.

However, Google support reached out to me after a 3-week gap, so they're working on it. I had sort of assumed that "we'll pass it on to the developers" was a polite way of saying "we've sent that to /dev/null," but that's apparently not the case.

Re: Google Music Manager - Could not identify my computer

seems like that they finally fixed it, currently downloading my library without changing the naming scheme big_smile
