Problem: A temporary problem with the i/o box

Sometimes clamd or spotd (and occasionally weathd) has trouble connecting to the i/o box (on ROTSE-IIIa). This will result in a log message as the following:

Aug 12 21:36:17 rotse3a spotd: open of /dev/ml16pa-digital failed: No such device


Aug 6 23:21:09 rotse3a rotsed: daemon init timeout (10.0045 > 10.00) exceeded, clamd (or spotd)

If this happens, wait at least 30 seconds and try to start the system again. It should work.
