journalctl -b -o short-monotonic --no-hostname | grep -i haveged -B 5 -A 5

I noticed several failures related to this service on a freshly installed Tumblweed system.

Attaching journal excerpt.

The only clue I see in the logs is the error

> haveged: Couldn't get poolsize
> haveged.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE

which occurs when haveged can't read /proc/sys/kernel/random/poolsize. (/proc not mounted?)

However, a moment later the restarted process seemingly crashes once more without saying anything about this issue, so I suppose it's unlikely that this is the cause of the crash.

I am also seeing this in logs, although it starts normally some time after that failure.
Comment 3 André Werlang 2020-07-31 18:43:27 UTC
From https://github.com/jirka-h/haveged/blob/7ae444b7a0aa64a96729d78dd724b4398b9b0eaa/src/haveged.c#L542

    error_exit("Couldn't get poolsize");

So this message points to the reason the service fails. Since the process restarts and doesn't seem to repeat the failure, I believe it's a timing thing. It needs to start after /proc is mounted, or something.

It sounds like bug bsc#1160723 which was already resolved with update to newer version of haveged. Can you try it with latest version and let me know if issue persists?
Comment 6 Suse User 2022-04-20 07:49:02 UTC
I don't see the message in the log any more.
Comment 7 Otto Hollmann 2022-04-21 08:29:25 UTC
Thank you for feedback, closing this bug as resolved.
