AFAICT, openssl has no configuration options related to prngd; they seem to be able to use it automatically when /dev/[u]random isn't there. This surprises me a bit because the location of prngd's random-data socket is evidently variable. I've not dug into exactly how openssl figures that out, but I'm sure a little quality time with the openssl sources would explain it. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
