Automatically restart Raspberry Pi with Watchdog Software

January 13, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

When working with my Raspberry Pi on a headless setup and found a need to restart the unit when it hung when processing software and it was a major pain to manually restart the unit so after a quick look on the internet,  I found this very handy blog that explains how to install software called watchdog.


Watchdog software is built into the broadcom BCM2708 , with a simple kernel module and watchdog daemon which can automatically reset the Pi when it freezes.

Take a look at this blog to find out how to set up and configure the watchdog software for you Raspberry Pi
