I'm having a bit of trouble generating a host key on an x86 Solaris 8
I've gotten the following built and installed:
My perl version is 5.005_03.
egd is running, and tests fine the egd "make test" and with:
#./egd.pl /etc/entropy get
22 sources found
forking into background...
But when I go to "make host-key", it just sits there. Tracking it down,
the place it stops is in random.c (line 99):
c = atomicio(write, random_pool, egd_message,
if (c == -1)
fatal("Couldn't write to EGD socket \"%s\": %s",
c = atomicio(read, random_pool, buf, len); <--------- HERE
It's this last line it never completes (line 99)
I noticed from the list archives that egd-0.7 is fairly new. There was
some talk on 4/20 about a similar problem ( John Weaver & Brian
Carrier), but I don't see any conclusion.
