SubjectRe: CONFIG_RANDOM option for 1.99.2 !Option!
We have seen a long discussion on how to get random numbers - I do not know
whether I need them or not, but-

what is the problem with having /dev/random an option?

Installing a secure-my-network-package.tar.gz - and it tells you:
"I really need /dev/random. Plese build a new kernel as follows
(1) cd /usr/src/linux
(2) configchange RANDOM_OPTION=y /* just as an example */
(3) make zImage
... "
If these instructions are correct, anybody who can install a package can
make a correct kernel. There is nothing about building a new kernel.
So please, Ted and Martin, go on, discuss and post a summary ;-).
