I know that on some embedded chips they have watchdog functionality, so
if the device hangs or stops responding, it auto-restarts.
Does the Gumstix have anything like this? Is it HIGHLY stable?
One of the many ideas I have for these beautiful things is an access
control system, and I need it to run without having to be rebooted.
I noticed the "Yanking the power" thread. I found this very
interesting. I guess I just assumed you could yank the power whenever
you wanted since there were no real moving parts, but that thread opened
my eyes that there is a possibility things could go wrong. Anyway.
Anyone have any horror stories of these things crashing/hanging? If so,
anyone developed any watchdog stuff?
