xTaskCreate restarts main

Posted by Jimmy on December 2, 2007

I'm running the 8051 port, and at various points within the xTaskCreate function, it jumps to the start of main(). I've checked to make sure the watchdog is disabled. Is there anything I should check for? I'm trying to just make one task for now, and this happens before the task scheduler is called. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

A couple of things to look at:

+ Have you installed any interrupt handlers that are firing, and then trying to use kernel features, prior to the kernel being started?

+ Are you running our of heap space?
