When trying to use mindterm from the ports-collection (a JAVA-based
ssh-client for X) which worked fine under OpenBSD2.9 i got this
$ uname -a
OpenBSD chef 3.0 CHEF#0 i386
$ /usr/local/jdk1.3.1-linux/bin/java -classpath\
java.lang.Error: Error in RandomSeed, while reading /dev/random
Thank you for using MindTerm...
This happends both with jdk1.1.8 and 1.3.1. I tried it with a version of
mindterm not from ports with the same results (The error-messages is a little
different but also complains about /dev/random). As far as i can see,
/dev/random was worked over between 2.9 and 3.0.(/usr/src/sys/dev/rnd.c).
So I guess the linux or freebsd-emulation may be partly broken. But I'm not
sure, maybe its something else so I post it here.
Maybe this happened to someone else too. Should I try blackdown?
If you need additional info, tell me, i will post it here.
