Pogoplug v3 (oxnas) OpenBSD SSH server starts slowly (solution)
February 22, 2022 06:48PM

after a long time i did a clean install for one of he Pogo V3. I used Debian-4.14.180-oxnas-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2 (17 May 2020). When i rebooted i realized that the SSH server takes very long time to start (4+ minutes):
[....] Starting OpenBSD Secure Shell server: sshd[  267.217536][    C0] crng init done

After searching the net i found https://daniel-lange.com/archives/152-Openssh-taking-minutes-to-become-available,-booting-takes-half-an-hour-...-because-your-server-waits-for-a-few-bytes-of-randomness.html. Tried adding a Kernel boot parameter, but it did not help. But installing Haveged did reduce the sshd start time to seconds.

apt install haveged
