Re: Error with random generator

Finnaly, by any reason, the /dev/random and /dev/urandom don't shows any new error, and start without problems.
I tried restart the server, but It says that the device or resource is busy.

How can I restart the server? I want to add the correct file in the server

The thing is: the random translator is supposed to be reading from
/var/spool/random-seed, not /var/run/random-seed (since the latter
doesn't survive reboots).

Again, rather make it use /var/spool/random-seed, otherwise the fix
won't survive a reboot.
