If you're on IRC, or follow me/bitfolk on twitter or on Facebook
you're probably bored to tears hearing about this, but just in case
there's some of you who aren't..
I've been investigating the issue of lack of entropy in virtual
machines recently, and have gone into it in some detail in the
following two blog postings:
I now have a solution for serving high-quality entropy to BitFolk
virtual machines, so if you feel you don't have as much entropy as
you need then it would be great if you would try out using my (free)
You will need to install ekeyd-egd-linux or some other solution
which can use the egd protocol from a TCP socket and feed it into
your kernel. The entropy service is at 126.96.36.199 port 8888.
No warranties or guarantees as to the quality of the entropy are
made, use at your own risk, your causality may be at risk if you
misuse this entropy or any other pseudo-random algorithm secured
upon it, ...
Let me know how you get on or if you have any problems.

Of course not. Everyone knows you can't have your kayak and heat it.
