iTCO watchdog in Ubuntu
In Ubilinux 4 running on our UP Boards, we can see the TCO watchdog:
We cannot get the iTCO watchdog to show up under /dev/watchdog in Ubuntu. Have followed the instructions on your Github and set up Ubuntu desktop 20.04 correctly as per these instructions yet the iTCO watchdog doesn't display.
What kernel should we have installed to get the watchdog working? We installed:
Linux upxtreme-UP-WHL01 5.4.0-1-generic #2~upboard2-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jul 25 13:35:27 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux as per the instructions.
Should we be using a different kernel to get the iTCO watchdog on an UP Board? We don't want to use Ubilinux anymore so need this to work in Ubuntu.
P.S. we need the iTCO watchdog, not a softdog.
