When i look at / in a standard installation like :
FreeBSD XXX 7.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE #0: Sun Feb 24 19:59:52 UTC
2008 root at logan.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386
There is only 1 file, named entropy :
-rw------- 1 root wheel 4096 Dec 11 17:36 entropy
I can't find any reference to that file in FreeBSD doc.
Any reference to it ? What is it used for ? I have look in RANDOM area,
but no reference...
Do i have to keep it read/write ? Can i put it in /var instead of / to
be able to keep / read-only ?
Thanks a lot,
