 /dev/random Coming to Solaris 8

Netsys.com reports on a random package for Solaris Sparc systems.

Good News for Solaris! You no longer need to install open-source random packages, as Sun has released an official version for the Solaris Operating Environment. We just noticed that Sun has released a PUBLIC patch for adding "/dev/random" support to Solaris, with support from 2.6 onward. See SunSolve and look for Patch ID: 112438-01
Patch available on Sunsolve.
