Hi,

I've also now tried 2048-bit and still it seems to go on forever...
I've already got a full page of dots and plus signs ... and I'm using
a high-res lcd screen... so that's a big page.

I don't know how long I should wait, I mean, last time it didn't
finish for a couple of hours.

PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  COMMAND
9934 root      25   0  4404 1180  964 R 92.0  0.5  12:11.47 openssl

it's been running for 12 min as of writing this email.
