I have to install a samba server on a newly created VE. But if i try to start samba i get this error message in smb.log:
[2008/08/28 11:12:31, 0] smbd/server.c:main(948)
smbd version 3.0.28-1.el5_2.1 started.

Fatal: no entropy gathering module detected
I found a forum entry back in November 2006 where the kernel was the problem.
So, i updated my kernel this morning from 2.6.18-53.1.19.el5.028stab053.14 to 2.6.18-92.1.1.el5.028stab057.2 in the hope that this fixes the problem. But it does not.
HN and VE are both fully up to date CentOS 5.2 machines.
The HN has /dev/urandom and /dev/random, but the VE only has /dev/random. Don't know if this may is the problem. Tried to create the node manually and rebooted the VE, but did not helped either.
Any other ideas?
