Re: Can't load rng module

Hi Paul,

Could you post the output of

# ll /dev/random
# ll /dev/urandom

# kcmodule -v rng

# swlist |grep -I krng

Re: Can't load rng module

Do "swlist -l fileset -a state" and find out about any installed or corrupt packages.
Normally all filesets are "configured".
In case anything is wrong here do an "swverify \*". This will probably give a hint about what's wrong.
Finally try to load the module manually:
kcmodule rng=loaded

My 2 cents,
Armin
And now for something completely different...

Re: Can't load rng module

Problem solved.

There was a problem with an old fc-driver that caused this. Not easy to find out, but thanks to HP support it was solved.

The fc-driver that was installed was from the september 06 release of HP-UX 11.23.
