   I'm running openssh 2.1.1p4 on Solaris 7 (sparc).  Occationally, when I
boot up the server, the startup script I wrote to start sshd fails to start
sshd with the following error:
fatal: Not enough entropy in RNG

What am I doing wrong??  

Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening?

Is just restarting sshd a valid thing to do??

Thanks for any thoughts,

Say Bye to Slow Internet!
