Post Linux watchdog driver
Hello all,

I'm running ubuntu server 12.04 on my new Intense PC, I have to enable watchdog, but I can't find any information regarding driver I should use.
Any help will be appreciated :)

Intense PC watchdog drivers for Linux can be found in Linux kernel.
And of course it should be enabled in BIOS.

In order to deal with watchdog in Linux you need to install watchdog application and edit 2 files:

$ sudo apt-get install watchdog

$ cat /etc/watchdog.conf
...
watchdog-device = /dev/watchdog1
...

$ cat /etc/default/watchdog
...
run_watchdog=1
watchdog_module=iTCO_wdt
...

If you simulate kernel panic (as super user) $ echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger the system will make restart after 60 sec
