RFE: instructions for /dev/(u)random
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
Instructions for creating and maintaining /dev/(u)random have been requested as a FAQ item. The FAQ maintainer thinks they would better fit BLFS.
These instructions entail the creation of two devices and a boot script (to carry entropy across shutdown). Full details are in random(4) on a typical LFS system.

- /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S15random is not executable, skipping
- /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S400gpm is not executable, skipping
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/init.d/random /etc/rc.d/init.d/gpm -- command needs to be added after EOF for script just created
also affects openssh

Remove link to rc1.d and set rc2.d to a Sxxrandom.
rc2.d is a startup mode (without networking), so all non-networking startups from rc3.d should be there and all networking stops from rc0.d should be there.
Thanks to Mark for questioning this.

Milestone 1.0 deleted
The devices are already created by MAKEDEV on a typical LFS system so it's just a matter of writing the script.
