Since friday, I have a VPS server with Debian.
I had to upgrade my VPS from Lenny to Squeeze (from stable to testing).
Upgrading went right, but I got that Fatal message in the title, when starting up CenterIM and Elinks.
Googling it was a pain in the ass, but I’ve found something.
That’s why I want to write this tutorial.
After upgrading, you’ll likely do this:
INSERT TERMINAL APP HERE
Fatal: no entropy gathering module detected
Now don’t panic.
Do the followings:
YOUR DEV’S (LOOK AT URANDOM AND RANDOM).
You’ll see either “urandom” and/or “random”.
rm -f urandom
rm -f random
Now we have to remake both of them and chmod it.
chmod 777 /dev/urandom
chmod 777 /dev/random
Now try the same app again, and it works!
