I'm not sure that the command line option of "-e0" makes sense here?  I was trying to setup a pi zero w and had a lot of problems with wpa_supplicant connecting or taking an extremely long time at boot and rngd fixed that, except when using -e0 as documented in this wiki.  I removed it and let it default to 8 which fixed my issues.  The remaining options are the defaults anyway so you don't really need to add any extra options to get a functioning rngd.

:Good point... I seem to have <code>RNGD_OPTS="-x1 -e8 -o /dev/random -r /dev/hwrng"</code> anyway.. and yes 8 is the default so I will remove it. [[User:Ty99|Ty99]] ([[User talk:Ty99|talk]]) 18:28, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

I'm not sure that the command line option of "-e0" makes sense here? I was trying to setup a pi zero w and had a lot of problems with wpa_supplicant connecting or taking an extremely long time at boot and rngd fixed that, except when using -e0 as documented in this wiki. I removed it and let it default to 8 which fixed my issues. The remaining options are the defaults anyway so you don't really need to add any extra options to get a functioning rngd.

Good point... I seem to have RNGD_OPTS="-x1 -e8 -o /dev/random -r /dev/hwrng" anyway.. and yes 8 is the default so I will remove it. Ty99 (talk) 18:28, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
