hmmm... I just got a message from chris, he said he will be adding AES/Rijndael to the kernel ASAP... According to the Rijndael spec, it seems to also function as an excellant pseudo-random number generator... You can find this info at: http://www.esat.kuleuven.ac.be/~rijmen/rijndael Section

Okay, I just built it successfully without WITH_LINUXTHREADS=yes. I also noticed that my linuxthreads lib was linuxthreads-2.1.2, and I'm rebuilding it with the linuxthreads-2.2.3_1 sources. Afterwards, I'll try the compile again. Jim Bryant wrote: I forgot to add: I am using the make

Am I desynched? I went to single-user, tried to do a fsck -s, and found there is no such option. Also, the /etc/fstab didn't need changed at all. It is already proper. Needless to say, going to single-user, running just `fsck -y /dev/ad0s1g` fixed the problem, although it noted no errors.
