I'm trying to generate a key using 'gpg --gen-key' command, but at the end
of the process the output ends with:

"gpg: fatal: can't open /dev/urandom: No such file or directory
secmem usage: 2304/2304 bytes in 8/8 blocks of pool 2304/32768"

Then i try to create the /dev/urandom device using the /dev/MAKEDEV script,
and the output is:

"./MAKEDEV: urandom: Unknown device name"

How can be this managed?, what do the /dev/urandom device?, exist (or must
exist) /dev/urandom on a GNU/Hurd system?.

Thanks in advance, for your answers.
