In the log it says "See tests/test-suite.log". So I need that file for further analysis. Can you consistently reproduce this? Were you running rngd already at the time of this merge? If you system was low on entropy, this test may fail. It's not an indication of the package failure however.
Comment 3 Alexey 2020-01-09 01:13:41 UTC
tests/test-suite.log is pasted in the first comment - that's its whole content.

This is not a new installation, but just a world update, so I think I had the package installed before. I don't know what is rngd is, and I don't have it in "ps aux", and I don't have it in /usr/bin

I think the tests should be hermetic and not depend on state of my system at that moment in time. I'll try to rebuild it to check whether it happens again.
Comment 4 Alexey 2020-01-09 01:20:03 UTC
Eh. I think in the installation guide I missed the step of adding it to the boot level... And it's in usr/sbin, which is why I didn't see it in bin
Comment 5 Alexey 2020-01-09 01:36:59 UTC
So, if the test relies on rngd running already, is it testing the rngd which is running, or the new version of the package which is being installed?
