udata_heap_1.o' can not fit the section.

Posted by sathish on June 12, 2012
any one help me to edit the linker file for my project.actually i am using pic 18f26j50 with c18 compiler in mplab i am getting this error while compile my file
Error - section '.udata_heap_1.o' can not fit the section. Section '.udata_heap_1.o' length=0x00000400
how to rectify this one...

Look at the file 18f452.lkr in FreeRTOS/Demo/PIC18_MPLAB. It creates a large data bank called BIG_BLOCK to fit the FreeRTOS heap, you will have to do a similar thing in your linker script.

Note that there are (documented) problems when a stack allocated from this big block crosses a page boundary, although you will find fixes for this in FreeRTOS Interactive and other locations - but still the PIC18 is far from an ideal target to run any kind of pre-emptive RTOS because of its paging scheme and hardware stack.

dear sir i have edited my linker file for pic18f26j50 and it also compiled successfully but the problem now is its not working with hardware..i am getting some warnings.the warnings are shown below...
D:\sathish\programs\FreeRTOSV7.1.1\led.c:42:Warning [2066] type qualifier mismatch in assignment

void vLed1( void *pvParameters );
void vLed2( void *pvParameters );
void vLed3( void *pvParameters );

void main(void)
xTaskCreate(vLed1,"Led 1", 400, NULL, 1, NULL );
xTaskCreate(vLed2,"Led 2", 400, NULL, 1, NULL );
xTaskCreate(vLed3,"Led 3", 400, NULL, 1, NULL );

void vLed1( void *pvParameters )
void vLed2( void *pvParameters )
void vLed3( void *pvParameters )

actually i am getting warning in task creation...the task creation in my program is correct r not..actually i am new to rtos...so i cant find out the problem help me...
thank u in advance...
