Problems with SVN using Jailbreak

    I have some problems using SVN.
    When logged in onto the server using SSH, the user can't checkout anything.

    When checking out:
    [email protected]:/web$ svn co http://mysite/svn/trunk .
    Fatal: no entropy gathering module detected
    I found out that this means that the shell doesn't have access to /dev/random or /dev/urandom (or both).
    How do I add these to the jailbreak shell?

    Best regards,

    I guess you mean jailkit and not jailbreak? For jailkit, add a appsection for svn that defines a /dev/random device in jk_init.ini and then add it in the jailkit server settings in ispconfig or use a existing appsection from this file that defines a /dev/random device.

    hehe, sorry... meant jailkit offcourse.

    I did that... I added [svn] to the ini file, and to the ispconfig conf... but it doesn't seem to work.
    Could you give me some example if you have any?

    This will be applied only for new websites. Create a new website and try again.

    ah.. allright... then I have to remove the previouse sites and re-create them.

    Is there any way to manually apply that to the current sites?

    Should be possible. You may want to take a look at the jailkit doku for the details on updating a chroot. Normally ispconfig should o this as well, but there seems to be a problem in the current code that does not reflect changes in app sections on updates.

    I solved this bu running following command:

    jk_cp -v -j /var/www/clients/client00/web00/ /dev/random

    substitute client00 and web00 with your data
