I used the SDHC kernel referenced in this thread:


I've installed this SDHC kernel on an N800 with only xterm + openssh as additional apps, R&D enabled, and I've had at least 3 random reboots in the last week - each time the device has been idle. The device contains the Nokia 128Mb flash card in the internal slot (112Mb swap) and SanDisk 4GB SDHC card in the external slot. The only file in /var/lib/dsme/stats is one called "sw_rst" and it contains one line containing "3" - there are no lifeguard* files.

I also have a second N800 running the stock Nokia 2.2006.51-6 kernel with a ton of apps (also in R&D mode) and this device is far more stable, suggesting there may be stability issues with the SDHC kernel.

Both devices are connected 24x7 to an 11g WPA-PSK/TKIP network (Linksys WRT54GS v2 running Sveasoft Talisman 1.2rc3).

The instability of the SDHC device would suggest there may be something missing or wrong in the SDHC kernel I have used, is there more than one SDHC kernel floating around?

"uname -a" for the SDHC kernel I have used is:

Linux Nokia-N800-51 2.6.18-omap1 #1 Thu Jan 18 21:53:31 GMT 2007 armv6l unknown
