Watchdog driver
« on: May 06, 2014, 02:52:02 AM »
Hello guys, greetings from Greece :)

I can't find a watchdog timer driver for piCore 5.2.2.

Is it available? Where could I find it?

Thank you

It is built into the kernel, not a module.

Thank you

# mknod /dev/watchdog c 10 130 but then if I
Code: (bash) [Select]
# cat /dev/watchdogI get No Such Device

Can't check 5.2.2 as actually running 5.3rc2 but /dev/watchdog is there by default and this part of kernel config is the same.
