Task Not Starting

Posted by John W. on September 13, 2007

I thought there was a recent post about tasks not starting in certain conditions - I saw the one regarding the queue fix - but has there been any other
problems in the recent past?

I looked through the forum back through July and didn't see anything - and did a search but the search comes up with a lot of hits when you use the
word 'task'.

I'm seeing a condition where vPortYield runs once, and that's it. That particular task never runs again. I just see the
IDLE task running after that. I only have the IDLE task and a 'test' task running since I'm debugging some stack issues.

Is this using the MSP430? I know you are an expert on the RTOS so don't want to ask obvious questions, but are you positive that the tick interrupt is running?

Hello Dave,

I appreciate the accolades.

Yes, the timer2ISR is running - this is for the 8051/8052 C8051F120.

I thought there had been some posts in the recent past about tasks not running - maybe this only had to do with the queue.c fix.

I'm running the 'tip-of-tree' so to speak - the 4.5.0 preview/prerelease.

Curious issue is the timer2ISR runs, but I don't see the LED task in this case, ever trying to run again. It's as if it's been suspended
