[gentoo] urandom fails to start


Fresh install on a laptop..

Code:
thinkpad ~ # /etc/init.d/urandom start
* ERROR: urandom failed to start
This is preventing me from getting tty screens and from my wireless to work (amongst other things)

Anyone got any ideas, where to start, what information do you need from me?
