[SailfishDevel] Installation trouble with the SDK

I waited each time for at least a few minutes... More than that,
before rebooting. I might try that again. I also tried moving the
mouse about, but not for a full minute... The home partition is
encrypted, so the installation may have depleted the random pool, but
I also tried a ssh-keygen command which did not have problems
finishing (and I think is eventually what gets called).

The problem with your second suggestion, is that I tried that already,
and I could not do it. The mouse still moves, but keyboard input and
mouse clicks do not work.

Thanks for the suggestions,
