Re: hw_random

OK, thank you for your help.

By the way, I have solved that problem with the the Fn+F7: just passing then option nolapic to the kernel. As someone tell me before, there were no relation between the problems.

This just means the system tried to load the hw_random module, but since
your system doesn't have a built-in hardware rng it can't load it.

Just remove the hw_random entry from /etc/modules*

AFAIK hw_random devices are in some via C3 chips, intel's i810 chipset
and some P4 chips
