Decoding / encoding audio / video is also a fairly good source for entropy. You can do the encoding / decoding even if the server is headless and without a sound subsystem. Basically anything process that uses the disk(s), RAM, *and* CPU is going to build up entropy in the kernel as the timings of the 3 are slightly different and the kernel uses those differences as part of the entropy calculation. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
