I have been migrating mu setup from one drive to another. During this process, at some point my login manager, SDDM started not starting by itself apparently. I had the impression that I needed to start loging in to a console first or shifting between virtual console and startup screen (Ctrl-Alt-2, Ctrl-Alt-1). But that was hard to reproduce. My most recent guess is that it is related to cnrg initialization. As per the logs:
Code:
mrt 16 18:32:51 sysoppad systemd[1]: Started Simple Desktop Display Manager.
-- Subject: Unit sddm.service has finished start-up
-- Defined-By: systemd
-- Support: https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/systemd-devel
--
-- Unit sddm.service has finished starting up.
--
-- The start-up result is RESULT.

Code:
mrt 16 18:38:00 sysoppad kernel: random: crng init done
mrt 16 18:38:00 sysoppad kernel: random: 7 urandom warning(s) missed due to ratelimiting
mrt 16 18:38:00 sysoppad sddm[3707]: Initializing...

This points towards the kernel. I did modify some kernel configuration aspects, but wouldn't know what change causes this problem.

Any help in finding the culprit and fixing this issue is appreciated.

Thanks, installing haveged fixed it, trusting the cpu did not (probably because I'm on Sandy Bridge, where no rdrand is available). Who would have guessed it was due to the fact that I replaced an hdd with an sdd…
