The service is reported as stopped.

Code: Select all

[root@ipfire init.d]# ./rngd start
Random Number Generator Daemon is already running...                                                                                                                                                                                                                             [  OK  ]
[root@ipfire init.d]# ./rngd restart

Random Number Generator Daemon is already running... 
Any clue what might cause this?

later edit: from viewtopic.php?f=52&t=22093&hilit=random ... or#p121322 I could see that /var/run/rngd.pid did not even exist.
Yet, the process was running. Killed the process. Started the service and the pid file appeared. Indeed, with 600 instead of 644 permissions.
