Thanks for enlightening information Ante. I wasnt familiar with this Entropy 

Rignt now I am remotely connected to the server through SSH. Mouse movements 
isnt an option. Keyboard doesnt seem to work for me either. So I am 
wondering what is the common way to produce the enough random bytes in 
entropy pool in my situation. All I want is to create an authkey once
