PRNG is not set while running sshd


when i run sshd it is throwing error "PRNG is not seeded", there are working node present, random and urandom under /dev/. What may be the problem?

# /tmp/sshd
PRNG is not seeded

/tmp # ls -l /dev/random
crwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8, 1 Jan 1 08:32 /dev/random
/tmp # ls -l /dev/urandom
crwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9, 1 Jan 1 08:31 /dev/urandom

What OS are you using?? This problem has several solutions, depending on what OS you have. You can easily find the solution on Google.
