I am using a GT240 under X, and while experimenting with CUDA, sometimes (due to bugs of my own) the CUDA kernel takes too long to finish. While that happens, my PC is frozen. I know that under Windows XP, there is a watchdog timer that “kills” the kernel if enough time has passed. My question:
A. Does this watchdog exist under Linux, when a GT240 is also being used to run the X server?
B. If so, how can I configure this timer? Is there an environment variable or something?
Thanks in advance,
