#10713 closed defect (duplicate)

/dev/random does not produce data

Reported by: flyn Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: kernel random RB493G Cc:


On trunk (revision 29632) on a RB493G, the kernel does not seem to generate enough entropy for /dev/random to produce data. This prevents the krb5kdc (Kerberos) service from running because "kdb5_util create -s" hangs while it attempts to generate random data.

Also, cat /dev/random does not print anything.

/dev/urandom works fine. In fact, linking /dev/urandom to /dev/random allows "kdb5_util create -s" to complete, but this does not have sufficient cryptographic properties.
