Apache hangs on digest secret generation

with one comment

This solved the issue. However, I couldn’t recompile apache with the urandom use flag, so I went for the randomness gathering daemon solution. On a gentoo box:

# cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
16
# emerge -av rng-tools
# rc-update add rngd default
# /etc/init.d/rngd start
# cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
