    SubjectRe: CONFIG_RANDOM option for 1.99.2 !Option!
    Date
    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 ;-).
