I understand there is some work being done to the rng etc? As per previous comments from sp0ck.

In the case of the main PokerTH server, can a member of the admin team please answer the following:

What prng is being used currently?

Any third party software additional to built in linux prng?

Is the server virtual, virtual dedicated or dedicated? What processor manafacturer/VM provider?

What is the results of entropy_avail on the server at multiple times throughout the day and week?


Some questions have been asked around entropy before, I am aware of these but there has been no good dialogue/answers to these.

EDIT: Some links for background
