Subject Re: how to raise entropy

Also, if your hardware is running a 2.6 kernel, try to insmod hw_random and if
that reports finding something like :

hw_random: AMD768 system management I/O registers at 0x5000.
hw_random hardware driver 1.0.0 loaded

Then you can just start /usr/sbin/rngd and you should get a very much improved
entropy.
