I am trying to start Debian without X, so I set /etc/x11/default-display-manager empty.

It works, but i get a

random:nonblocking pool is initialized 


Is there a better way to do it? Why I'm getting that message?

I'm using xdm.


If you don't want xdm to start at boot, simply disable its systemd unit or initscript:

systemctl disable xdm


update-rc.d xdm disable

If you don't need xdm at all you should be able to uninstall it.
