Hi all,

Has anyone successfully run Postgresql with openssl 0.9.6x on systems that
do not have /dev/random or /dev/urandom?  I would like to know how to
specify the location of the socket for the random device, eg /dev/egd-pool
in psql.  Basically, openssl runs properly if I specify -rand /dev/egd-pool,
but when run via psql, the random device was not specified.

Or do I have to wait for OpenSSL 0.9.7 which says that it will automatically
check for /dev/egd-pool among other places?

Thanks in advance,
