come across another interesting package "rng-tools"
Using the Jitter RNG core, the rngd provides an entropy source that feeds into the Linux /dev/random device if its entropy runs low. It updates the /dev/random entropy estimator such that the newly provided entropy unblocks /dev/random.
The seeding of /dev/random also ensures that /dev/urandom benefits from entropy. Especially during boot time, when the entropy of Linux is low, the Jitter RNGd provides a source of sufficient entropy.
furthermore when i cat to mtab it shows content.
not with vi to edit. it links back to several locations
was wanting to edit some flags

i must copy paste this to /etc/fstab and after edit? because fstab was empty. meanwhile i found mtab cant be edited at all. so was wondering copying the content of mtab and after adjusting it in the fstab would mean the changes would be active when in userspace right? dont know if openwrt uses the fstab at all because it was empty.
