I was trying to use rngd v0.99 and noticed, that the
target device is always
/dev/random. A small change is needed in rngd.c to fix
that:

Line 382:

random_fd = open("/dev/random", O_RDWR);

I think should be:

random_fd = open(arguments->random_name, O_RDWR);

After that correction, rngd is working as wished.

    I agree, but, this problem is long fixed :)

    Please update to rng-tools 1.0, just released.
