mutex semaphore

Posted by Robert Brock on April 29, 2009
My question is related to semaphores. I am playing with the ATMega323_WinAVR demo. I looked up the mutex semaphore in the API reference, copied the mutex example into the demo, and compiled it. Got an error complaining about an "undefined reference to xQueueCreateMutex". If I drop in a binary semaphore is compiles just fine. I have queue.c compiled and queue.h included. Again, I'm sure I'm just missing something simple. Any ideas?

Did you define configUSE_MUTEXES in your FreeRTOSConfig.h ?

Good call. That's all it took.

But now my question is ... how should I have known this? The FreeRTOSConfig.h says "THESE PARAMETERS ARE DESCRIBED WITHIN THE 'CONFIGURATION' SECTION OF THE FreeRTOS API DOCUMENTATION AVAILABLE ON THE FreeRTOS.org WEB SITE."

But I can't find a "Configuration" section. What are they talking about?
