This is the Debian GNU/Linux prepackaged version of watchdog.
This package was put together by Michael Meskes <>
using the example driver given in the kernel.
further Information:
* see /usr/src/linux/Documentation/watchdog.txt
Before you can use a kernel watchdog driver you have to make sure that the
corresponding module is loaded. You can do that with "modprobe <drivermodule>"or with
adding the <drivermodule> to the file "/etc/modules" to make sure it is always
loaded during system startup. The software watchdog driver is called "softdog".
