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?

To use /dev/random, after you've installed random-egd.  Probably
difficult to try again now when you have copied over some file to it.

I saw that there was no /dev/random after i'd installed random-egd,
so i thought that trying to access anything by that name was non-sensical.
