No random number generator and you did not seed the machine.
On another machine with working random number generator (nearly all modernish
amd64 machines have that) do:
dd if=/dev/random of=/tmp/file bs=32 count=1
then scp the file over and dd it into /dev/random:
dd if=/tmp/file of=/dev/random bs=32 count=1
This will be preserved accross reboots, so it is a one-time only fix.
