:Recommended minor alteration to the L15 algorithm in
:DragonFly's /dev/[u]random random number generator:
:I recommend that you alter your C implementation of my
:L15 algorithm as per the description:
:So that the "y" state index is initialised to be
:(stateSize - 1)/255 instead of 0.
:"y" as in "x", "z".
Hey Robin, I'm not exactly sure where the fix goes in but I think I
can figure it out if you point me at the particular line you made
the change to in your original C++ version of the code (and post the
URL to the source file as well).
