Why default FIPS DBRG only call the RAND_poll() once?

Gaofan
hi all,

I set the fips mode and call the RAND_pseudo_bytes for more than 1<<24 times to trigger the reseed process, but I found RAND_Poll() still cannot be called in the reseed process.
if (!initialized) {
        RAND_poll();
        initialized = 1;
    }
the initialized  cannot be changed during the reseed process, can anyone help, why it will not call the RAND_poll() to get the data from the /dev/urandom? Thanks a lot.

Best regard
Gaofan
