GPG key generation: Not enough random bytes available.

A common error when creating keys with GnuPG is: Not enough random bytes available. In this article we have a look at the cause and solution to create more random bytes for entropy.

Summary of GPG key generation: Not enough random bytes available.

Not enough random bytes available Generating keys with GnuPG Anyone who wants to create a new key set via GnuPG (GPG) may run into this error: some other action (type on the keyboard, move the mouse, utilize the disks) during the prime generation; this gives the random number generator a better chance to gain enough entropy. Not enough random bytes available. Please do some other work to give the OS a chance to collect more entropy!
