Edit your /etc/rc.conf file and add the following line:
rand_irqs="1 3 4 7 14 15"
Look at your dmesg output to find appropriate IRQ's to use. Keyboard, mouse,
HDD controllers, and soundcard might be good choices. Picking bad IRQ's won't
hurt you since they are stirred into the pool. Use the rndcontrol utility to
enable IRQ's as entropy sources without rebooting.
