OpenSSH Taking Minutes To Become Available, Booting Takes Half An Hour ... Because Your Server Waits For A Few Bytes Of Randomness
> Basically as of now the entropy file saved as /var/lib/systemd/random-seed will not - drumroll - add entropy to the random pool when played back during boot. Actually it will. It will just not be accounted for. So Linux doesn’t know. And continues blocking getrandom(). This is obviously different from SysVinit times2 when /var/lib/urandom/random-seed (that you still have lying around on updated systems) made sure the system carried enough entropy over reboot to continue working right after enough of the system was booted.
And then... it just kinda keeps getting worse. The problem is understandable, the inability to resolve it less so.
