freeRTOS + LM3S6965 + openOCD went outdated

Posted by Djeed on July 18, 2012
Hello everyone!

I have been struggling for a while on this. I have:

· Stellaris LM3S6965 evaluation board
· openOCD 0.5.0
· freeRTOS 7.1.1
· Eclipse Juno
· Linux Ubuntu machine

Certainly, the freeRTOS demo named 'CORTEX_LM3Sxxxx_Eclipse' is meant to be run on Windows host. Anyway, I made some changes and it can now be buid with Eclipse.

The problem comes with the openOCD debugger. The config files from the demo, namely 'fury_ft2232_flash.cfg' and 'fury_ft2232.cfg', are not compatible anymore with the current version (and even older ones) of openOCD.

Could anyone provide the updated versions for them or shed some light on how to modify those files?

That demo, and the debugger files included in the download, are indeed very old. They should work as configured, but will not work with newer configuration files. You may find somebody here has newer files they can share with you, but I recommend looking for an example on the OpenOCD forums, rather than here (I think SparkFun host some OpenOCD content and forums).

Thank you for your reply Richard.

Is there any chance that the freeRTOS demos will be officially updated in the near future?
