Error in GnuTLS initialization with Debian Hurd

VirgilPosted by

This evening I have reinstalled Debian GNU/Hurd, using VirtualBox. After starting in safe mode, I have tried to update it and I got the following error:

root@debian:/home/debian# apt update
Error in GnuTLS initialization: Failed to acquire random data.
Error in GnuTLS initialization: Failed to acquire random data.
Hit:1 http://deb.debian.org/debian-ports unreleased InRelease

To fix it, run:

settrans -c /dev/urandom /hurd/random --seed-file /var/run/urandom-seed --fast
chmod 0644 /dev/urandom

Now it’s working 🙂

root@debian:/home/debian# apt update
Hit:1 http://deb.debian.org/debian-ports unreleased InRelease
