I use an 8 cores x86_64 processor (not 4, as I wrote earlyer). And there is
some watch dog running. I think that there is one for each core, but I dont
remember where this idea commes from. It is not real a problem but:
- It looks like Windows, that I have allways seen accessing hard disk every
second witout respect to the hardware,
- when booting from an USB hard disk, it slowdown the system.
It must be the Kernel (vmlinuz-3.4.47-2.38-desktop), because the system do
this after having started in mode 3. Starting in mode 3 is the only way I
found to escape the hell loop of bad screen size setting of X, loop that
appen sometime when the system starts directly in mode 5. A login as root and
execute "init 5" works fine. If the size of the screen is bad (ie. 1024x768)
I execute "init 3 ; sleep 5 ; init 5" and repeat until the format matches the
full screen possibilities (1380x1024).
I know the utility of a watchdog. This afternoon, I restarted "by mistake" an
oss 12.2 upgraded yesterday to 12.3 (vmlinuz-3.7.10-1.1-desktop), and that
finished with a freezed screen with colored horizontal lines. I dont know if
some of you know this, but by luke, the last time I saw that was while
fighting with KDE4, X, and other GRUB. During the early tries of this system
(12.2 upgraded 12.3), I mentionned that there was no regular access to the
Did someone heared something about this(these) watchdog(s), and eventualy,
the way to remove it(them) ?
