Hi there,


I am new to the imx51 platform and I apologise if my question is trivial but I wasn't able to find documentation about it.


I am trying to use /dev/random on imx51 (and linux 2.6.31).

When I read from it, I have got no data.

I would have thought the imx random number generator present in the SAHARA would be connected to it.

I used other chips in the past and the internal RNG was connected to /dev/random.

Am I missing something ? Or maybe I am using the wrong Linux version ?

Thanks for your help.
