Change Logs

Version: 5-bp150.2.4
* Sat Feb 06 2016
- 90-hwrng.rules: Improve udev rule, autostart rngd only
  when there are hwrng drivers available and one is actually
  bound to the device.
* Mon Oct 19 2015
- enable aarch64 as well
* Sat Oct 17 2015
- Enable Power64 architecture. Starting with Power7+ we have in
  CPU random number generator
* Thu Sep 18 2014
- add patch: rng-tools-check_signals.patch (bnc#897335)
  check for signals in all loops to react to SIGINT/SIGTERM
* Wed Sep 03 2014
- Apparently --fill-watermark expects a number between 0 and 4096
  now. So we now set it to 3700 which is ~90% of 4096.
* Mon Aug 25 2014
- Update to version 5
  * Support RDRAND capable systems that don't have AES-NI
  * Man page spelling fixes
  * Don't use fixed AES key for data reduction
  * Platform: Support x32. x86-64 micro-optimizations.
  * Fix RDRAND data reduction
  * Enable RDSEED instruction
- Add libgcrypt dependency needed for RDRAND
- Add back --fill-watermark=90% to the service file
- Package NEWS file
- Spec cleanup
* Fri Aug 22 2014
- package is needed on %arm (raspberry pi at least).
* Tue Jun 24 2014
- systemd: Do not start in containers, in that case
  entropy comes from the "host"
- systemd: Conflict with haveged, only one entropy daemon
  must be running.
* Wed Apr 30 2014
- Fix automagic startup with udev/systemd virtio-rng KERNEL
  name is hw_random not hwrng..
* Wed Apr 30 2014
- in some parallel universe --fill-watermark took a percentage
  value, not in this incarnation at least, where it takes
  an integer. just use the sane builtin default
* Fri Dec 27 2013
- udev does not like rules without a new line
* Sun Nov 24 2013
- there is no trousers-devel requirement anymore
- define _udevrulesdir only if not already defined
- run %udev_rules_update, if defined.
* Wed Oct 23 2013
- Drop old sysvinit stuff; none of distribution targets use it anymore
- Remove redundant %clean section
- Remove useless automake BuildRequires, CFLAGS export and autoreconf call
* Mon Sep 02 2013
- in a previous change I removed
  from the systemd service file because the service can get
  automatically started by udev, however there are usecases
  on which manual start is desirable, restore that.
* Wed May 15 2013
- remove option "--feed-interval=1" from init-script and
  service file, no current version of rng-tools has ever
  known this option (bnc#819764)
* Thu Apr 11 2013
- Just to be in the safe side, put udev rules later into
  the mix 50-hwrng.rules --> 90-hwrng.rules
* Tue Apr 09 2013
- 50-hwrng.rules + rng-tools.service, use activation by systemd+udev
  combo, the service will come up automatically when the kernel
  registers a /dev/hwrng device, service no longer requires
  manual intervention to work at all.
* Thu Oct 04 2012
- update to version 4:
  * Add RDRAND instruction support
  * Add -q and -v options for quiet and verbose output
  * Add -p option for specifying PID file (text file containing daemon's PID)
  * Disable entropy source if facing continued failures, but be
    tolerant of the occasional fault.
  * Default device is now the preferred /dev/hwrng
  * Do not use TPM device for RNG access, if /dev/hwrng is present
    (TPM RNG is exported via the kernel, in newer kernels)
- require $remote_fs in init script as binaries are below /usr
* Sun Jan 29 2012
- Update to version 3
  * add rngteswt program
  * support TPM chip's hardware RNG (and thus, a framework for
    supporting multiple entropy sources)
  * change default hardware RNG device name to "/dev/hw_random"
* Sat Dec 31 2011
- Put rngd back into %{_sbindir} /usr is mounted in the initrd now.
