Description of problem:
I'm trying to increase entropy on my system using:
but rngd segfaults instead (in both normal and FIPS mode).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. # cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
2. # cat /proc/1/exe | gzip -c | rngtest -p | rngd -f -r /dev/stdin
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Should increase entropy
Same command works on my local workstation with F12 using rng-utils-2.0-4.fc12.x86_64
Backtrace is short:
#0 0x00000002 in ?? ()
#1 0x08048a76 in do_loop (random_step=64, poll_timeout=60) at rngd.c:217
#2 0x08048c2f in main (argc=4, argv=0xbfefa1c4) at rngd.c:262
