Well I actually I did make the whole hurd cvs tree without errors (as I
stated in my original mail), but this message error eppeared anyway.
> Do people actually bother reading the mailing archives before asking
I read as much as I can lay my hands on, and I'm very sorry if my questions
are not that intelligent but I try to test any clue I find before asking. And
I don't ask stupid questions for fun - maybe I should learn to use google
better, for I tried to find a clue in the archives by questioning google but
this did not give any usefull suggestions.
Anyway I temporarily fixed a random be adjusting the "one" translator from
the hurd hacking guide (don't say I don't read any manuals) to return
random. Probably this random function won't be random enough to ensure
security for my ssh - but hey at least I now have ssh :) I will continue
trying to get a better random running for safety reasons.
Thanks for the link - maybe this is the kind of information that would be
usefull for a newbie faq.
Again I thank all of you -and especially Alfred- for your help,
A little inaccuracy saves a world of explanation.
