4.164. rng-utils

An updated rng-utils package that adds one enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The rng-utils package provides random number generator utilities for user space, such as the rngd daemon.


A new "-i" (or "--ignorefail") command line option is now supported by the rngd daemon. This option allows rngd to ignore repeated warning messages about failed FIPS checks. Additionally, the rngd(8) manual page has been updated to provide a description of this newly added option.
All users of rng-utils are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which adds this enhancement.
