[ntp:questions] ntpd crashing on startup

When I reboot, my ntpd server now crashes. Here is the ntp.log:
9 Oct 21:16:13 ntpd: crypto_setup: random seed file //.rnd not found
9 Oct 21:16:14 ntpd: crypto_setup: random seed file //.rnd not found
But if I try to startup the server via xterm, ntpd will run.
I do have a /dev/urandom file.
I have also used openssl to generate certificates etc.
(Doesn't that mean I have a random seed file?)
So why am I getting this error?
Do I need to somehow create .rnd file via openssl?
or maybe I need to create a symlink to /dev/urandom etc?
