    So somebody decided that linux doesn't "need" more than 256 bit entropy anymore? srsly?
    Kind regards

    Code:

    t-kglh3:~ # sysctl kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold 
    
    kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold = 1024
    
    t-kglh3:~ # sysctl -w kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold=2024 
    
    kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold = 2024
    
    t-kglh3:~ # sysctl kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold 
    
    kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold = 2024
    Sorry, this simply doesn't work on my TW installs (tried 4 different machines):

    Code:
    dellscsi80722:~ # sysctl -w kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold=2024
    kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold = 2024
    dellscsi80722:~ # sysctl kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold
    kernel.random.write_wakeup_threshold = 256
    ?!!?

    Tried it on a Leap 15.4, there it works.
    Kind regards
