Or, depending your hardware and operating system, by installing
a harware random generator:

Linux Kernel:

Character devices -> Intel/AMD/VIA HW Random Number Generator support

CONFIG_HW_RANDOM:

   This driver provides kernel-side support for the Random Number
   Generator hardware found on Intel i8xx-based motherboards, AMD
   76x-based motherboards, and Via Nehemiah CPUs.

After that you will have a /dev/hw_random file, and you could use
'rngd' daemon to feed your /dev/random from /dev/hw_random.

Works like a charm here!

BR, Jani
