Blockstack CLI freezes at wallet creation


#1

@jslim18 reports trouble with the CLI in the Bitcoin Association of Hong Kong telegram group:

It paused at the initialization of new wallet, very strange. May I have your advice?

If you’re using Ubuntu/Debian, your device might not have enough entropy. You can try installing the package rng-tools:

sudo apt-get install rng-tools

See this issue.

Please let us know if this works!

Yup. That’s works flawlessly in VM and the lagging is gone!

We’ve also included rng-tools in the CLI install instructions on Github and on the website. What documentation did you follow to install blockstack? I’m trying to find the reason for why rng-tools was not installed and we can update our documentation accordingly. Thanks for your help!
