I have Crux ARM version 3.2 installed. When I try to start chrony daemon (/etc/rc.d/chronyd start) I get a weird error message:

Can't open /dev/urandom : Permission denied

Some facts:

  • I'm doing this from root account.
  • The root user and usergroup have permissions to access chronyd.
  • I have access to /dev/urandom (tried dd if=/dev/urandom bs=128 count=1).
  • I have chrony correctly installed (uninstalled and reinstalled it several times to check; I do have runscripts activated in prt-get).

Does anyone have any suggestions to solve the problem?

  • What operating system and what version of it are you running? (Check with uname -a) – Bex Jul 6 '17 at 8:05
  • I'm running Crux ARM version 3.2, as for the kernel I'll have to check, don't remember. – NotFromBrooklyn Jul 6 '17 at 16:39
  • Sorry for the delay, the kernel version is 4.4.19-1 – NotFromBrooklyn Jul 16 '17 at 13:32
