Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

alkk is basically right; this requires a of of entropy. Think system usage.
Easiest is to fire this off in one window, then go on with normal work in other windows until its done.
IF no GUI, background the job with '&'.
thanks every one .
so the only fast way that i found is to use /dev/urandom instead of using /dev/random . you can specify the source of random by using -r /dev/urandom in
there's also a way in here http://www.howtoforge.com/helping-th...s-debian-lenny
tp make enough entropy . i didn't try it my self
urandom is not really a source of truly random numbers. It is a pseudorandom number generator that (as I understand it) starts from a seed from random, but if the entropy isn't there, it is purely a pseudorandom number generator with its own seed.
The tools you point to would use a hardware random number generator - if it is available. Otherwise it too is a pseudorandom number generator, just a different one.
