ssh on hurd
I noticed that there is a sshd and a ssh client for hurd in the debian package
list, both these packages require a "/dev/urandom".
By means of the wise and allmighty gOOgle I found a tar ball called entropy
and created by Sune Kirkeby, the documentation says you should make it to
create a entropy/random server.
The problem is that when i try to make it (under hurd) the "cc" returns a
"operation not supported" error ( /bin/cc is a symbolic link to
/bin/gcc-3.0). No matter how many debug flags are toggled on, it keeps
returning this error. Next I tried to crosscompile (this is dirty) and
although i used "-I /gnu/include" the compiler stays complaining about
includes it can't find - but they are in /gnu/include !?
Can anyone tell me whether there is an other random or urandom package I
should use, or how I should compile the entropy tar ball ?
I also noticed that the entropy tar ball wants to patch the mach mini kernel -
should this really be nescessary ? I mean is gathering random bits not a far
to specialised task to do in the mini kernel ?
Thanks for reading :),
Don't kid yourself. Little is relevant, and nothing lasts forever.
