Making a dev/random ???


I know how to make a dev/null, but how would I make a dev/random?

ie:
mknod -m 666 /path/to/bindchroot/dev/null c 1 3

How would I go about making a random ... hmm... Can't just copy it from /dev/random ;-) *snicker*

Usually, the makedev script does this... if you want to do it manually, try to skip through this script and figure out how it is done... good luck

makedev script?

That doesnt exist on either of my servers... YDl2.1 nor RH7.3

Some directory named makedev.d exists, but it has nothing in it regarding a dev/random.
