We are just finishing up a CLI-version of GnuPG for Android to put into the
Play Store for an alpha release. We have all the key parts working except
--gen-key. The setup process works fine, but once it starts generating, it
never seems to get any entropy. I left one overnight and it never printed a
single dot even.
Abel and I checked /dev/random and there are bytes coming in. We also checked
/proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail and there are bytes available.
Any ideas on where to start here? We have importing of secret keys working fine.
