Hi,
I am trying my software that need to generate random number for each request. The code is the same I used successfully on other linux machines and basically is a call to srand() rand() and other stuff to get number bigger.
I have seen that it is always generating 11111111 or 11111112, so I think there is something to do in order to get it properly worked.
I saw that on raspberry it is required to change config file to something like "-o /dev/random" to activate a good entropy.
Bananian is using haveged daemon if I correctly understood, but maybe I need to do some further steps.

Someone knows what the problem above is?

Thanks
Gio
