Is there any way to feed
/dev/random with sufficient entropy? The data doesn't have to be truly random, i.e. I can append time of day with pid and add 27 to it, it doesn't matter I just want to make it run faster.
I tried to get the ball rolling with
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null . I want to know if there's some way I can use
/linux/random.h to artificially feed
/dev/random so that I don't get those unpredictable blocking calls. i.e. I'm willing to sacrifice some randomness in return for speed.
P.S. - please don't suggest using
