FreeRTOS stalling at prvStartFirstTask on STM32L4

Posted by masrurmahmood on August 9, 2017


I'm running into an issue where the code is stuck in prvStartFirstTask(). What could be the reason for FreeRTOS to get stuck here? What can I do to debug this issue?

Please advise.

The first task is started using an SVC interrupt. Have you installed the FreeRTOS interrupt handler? See "Special note to ARM Cortex-M users:" in the "The application I created compiles, but does not run" FAQ on the following page: http://www.freertos.org/FAQHelp.html
