Does /dev/urandom exist? What are it's permissions?
Never eat more than you can lift.
Thanks for the clue,
Both the files /dev/random and /dev/urandom are missing in my system.
How do i go ahead in fixing this issue
Thanks and Regards
I just noticed this on mine. Do you have the service urandom in the
root@smoker / # eselect rc list boot
Init scripts to be started by runlevel boot
root@smoker / #
That may help. If it is there, try restarting it and see if you get any
errors. Make sure you don't have anything important running just in
case it stops other services when restarting this service.
