Description of problem:
When i run Phoenix miner on my clean install fedora 15 watchdog take 100% of CPU and pc freeze. I have installed official drivers from AMD website.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clean Fedora 15 XFCE install
2. Installing Ati drivers and AMD SDK Tool 2.5, installing numpy, opencl python
3. Installing phoenix miner (bitcoin).
100% cpu load from watchdog
0% load from watchdog
3 video card x Radeon 5770
AMD Sempron 145
2 gb ram kingston
GA-770T-D3L Gigabyte motherboard
I don't understand the description.
Do you mean you have installed the software watchdog
and this process is taking 100% of CPU, or is there some other
watchdog you are talking about?
I use Fedora 16 with Openbox.
I also have a problem with watchdog, and it's very diffucult to reproduce.
However, sometimes after a couple of minutes of turning on the computer, the pc freeze for a short period of time (3,4 or 5 seconds).
So, when I start de computer I run manually "top -b >> somefile" to see after the freezing what's the problem.
This way i could find out that watchdog has peaks of cpu load. This peaks of cpu load come with other peaks from another programs. But they vary, you can find firefox, parcellite, nm-applet, kworker, etc. But always the highest peak is from watcthdog.

output of top right after reboot
In line 7780 you can find the peak of cpu load from watchdog

Hello, please pay attention to comment 1.
Are you (any of you) talking about the software watchdog
daemon, or some other "watchdog", and if so what other watchdog?

I'm talking about the watchdog daemon.

I don't have any other watchdog software installed.
The watchdog daemon does not appear in either of
the enormous files posted.
Note that "watchdog/N" is not the software watchdog

Ok, great. Then I don't know what it is.
I search for 'watchdog' in yumex and I only have installed
rtkit (ver 0.10-1.fc16) and ppl-pwl (ver 0.11.2-3.fc16).
