Pineapple Reboots every 30 minutes?


Recommended Posts

there is/was a watchdog process...

any process that consumes too much memory/processor affects performance, a thread that cannot count for something like 5secs, will result in the watchdog process thinking the device is in a DoS, so it resets to recover.

this appeared in the original Fon/Fonera, and possibly other devices?

what you running, how much is that process consuming the processor?

I could be wrong? other hypothesis are welcome?

I can run any module that uses Wlan 1 it works perfectly for 30 minutes and then the pineapple reboots.

Disabling the watchdog process has stopped the random reboots for me (2.8.0).

Run "/etc/init.d/watchdog stop" to disable it.. or chmod -x /etc/init.d/watchdog to disable it permanently. (You can do chmod +x /etc/init.dwatchdog to renable it on boot)

Will try that when I get home!

killing the Watchdog indeed works, but your pineapple can get very very unresponsive as I just tested :P

And that is the reason we have it enabled ;)

No, in all seriousness, the watchdog is there to protect the system - while it may help in some cases, turning it off isn't a good idea.
