Entropy

Post by cocolocko » September 14th, 2018, 9:54 am

Hi together,

today i took a look at my IPFire system (IPFire 2.21 (i586) - Core Update 123 ), it is running on a Intel i5-3450S CPU, which support RDRAND.
But i see in the Webui under 'Entropy' that the 'Random Number Generator Daemon' has Status 'STOPPED'.
In the past it was running.
Does someone have a idea how i can reenable it?
Thank you.

Greetings :D

It's a known problem that rng-tools not support i586 anymore.

We have patched this and will release this with the next core update...
