We are using your Colibri T20 modul on top of the IRIS carrierboard as part of our test instruments. We need to provide a robust system, in case of power outages and emergency shutdowns. Recently we’ve switched to the Linux Image provided on your website, specifically version 2.6.1, and we’ve experienced boot failures due to some forced “hard resets” of the device, which is causes by the power supply being switched off. Do you have any suggestions on some specific changes that we can make to the Linux Image to avoid this, besides making the filesystem readonly, or suggestions to Uninterruptable Power Supply systems that are comptabile with your modules? In the attachment you can find the whole boot log, but we guess the most interesting lines are:

Any comments on this would be more than welcome. Also, we’ve been using your Windows CE images for quite some time, and this issues do not arise.
