Cross-posting to Factory...

Hello All,
I'm struggling with testing OBS Appliances ( ) which uses gpg keygen
during setup.
Checking the appliance started with openQA QEMU_VIRTIO_RNG=1 options

cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail

while on o.o.o w/o QEMU_VIRTION_RNG entropy_avail is ~37

Googling about the topic suggests using dev/urandom, but it's not
secure enough...

Any ideas?
