Hello all,
i had myself the same issue and wanted to point out
that this (in my case) relates to the first boot after installation.
At that point openswan tries to create the ipsec.secrets
an is waiting for 'entropy'.
So just 'hammer' on the keyboard and the system will
bump forward.  :-)

The VIA padlock notification can be ignored.
