[xmlsec] Problem in xmlsec initialization

As a followup to my own post, here's the error that I captured while xmlsec was initializing:

func=xmlSecOpenSSLAppLoadRANDFile:file=app.c:line=1382:obj=unknown:subj=RAND_load_file:error=4:crypto library function failed:file=
func=xmlSecOpenSSLAppInit:file=app.c:line=54:obj=unknown:subj=xmlSecOpenSSLAppLoadRANDFile:error=1:xmlsec library function failed:

How do I get it to successfully load the rand file at startup? Our system doesn't have /dev/random nor /dev/urandom but uses .rnd file.

Subject: [xmlsec] Problem in xmlsec initialization

I was wondering if anybody came across the problem I'm experiencing & any clues how to fix it. Platform is Solaris 8.

I have a daemon that uses xmlsec 1.2.5 for XML encryption. When I run the daemon from commandline all works fine, but when I put the startup script in rc3.d the function xmlSecCryptoAppInit() returns with error (i.e. -1). I'm using NULL as parameter (as for the parameter I'm not sure what "path to crypto library configuration" means).

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
