Looks like the problem with random-64 installed was that it was not
executable. Regarding random-egd I don't really know why it failed. The
problems appeared due to that /dev/random and /dev/random were not
created. To be added is that I am running as root using sudo.

BTW: Is there a way to create the root login, choosing sudo to do
everything as user is very cumbersome. It is much better to have a root
and an ordinary user.
