Feeding the Entropy Bunny


Recommended Posts

Hello, this is a little trick to help relieve our beloved pineapple need for entropy; here comes the haveged daemon!

Haveged feeds the kernel entropy pool by measuring cpu cycles, I tested it for some 2 weekes and the entropy bunny is really happier now; so here it is a quick guide to get everyone up and running:

ssh into your Pineapple and make sure it is connected to internet, then

opkg update
opkg --dest sd install haveged
ln -s /sd/etc/init.d/haveged /etc/init.d/haveged
/etc/init.d/haveged start
/etc/init.d/haveged enable

Hope you'll find it useful!
