Hrm, the above is just a test whether the translator is already set, it
the error messages should better be surpressed.

Anyway, despite those error messages, /dev/{u,}random should have been
setup correctly, did you try?

Try what?

I got dpkg error messages when i did ./native-install, but there was no
way to scroll the screen back or capture the output.

I did all the install instructions on the guides, but don't know what
step was supposed to make /dev/random.
