linking errors =(

Posted by ricardo marinheiro on July 5, 2008
Hi everyone!
I'm new with this rtos, and i'm having problems using ST91x ARM9 port.
Linking errors like these:
Error[Li005]: no definition for "vPortFree" [referenced from F:\ricmarin\tellus\STARM\ledblinkst91x\Debug\Obj\task.o]
Error[Li005]: no definition for "vPortStartFirstTask" [referenced from F:\ricmarin\tellus\STARM\ledblinkst91x\Debug\Obj\port.o]
Error[Li005]: no definition for "pvPortMalloc" [referenced from F:\ricmarin\tellus\STARM\ledblinkst91x\Debug\Obj\task.o]
maybe a missing an include file, but vPortStartFirstTask for example is given as an external fuction, but from where?...
could someone give me a little hand with this?.. thank you very much!

On the assumption you are using the IAR port:

vPortStartFristTask() is defined in Source\portable\IAR\STR91x\portasm.s79.
vPortMalloc() and vPortFree() are defined in Source\portable\MemMang\heap_n.c where n is 1, 2 or 3.

You might consider using the existing STR9 demo project file as this would give you a working project to start from.

hi Richard
Thanks for the tip, the errors are finaly gone, but even so my little led blinking task does'nt work...
It just don't add it to the "task manager".
Tried to do as you told me, use the demo prog, but when linking it pass the 32kb IAR demo program limit.
If someone know where can i get a simple toggle led program for STR9 of IAR, with using freeRTOS, PLEASE leave a tip...
Thank you
