NIL AVR depends on RT

Postby tfAteba » Mon Jun 05, 2017 9:08 am

Hi, Giovanni,

In the trunk, the current NIL demo for AVR do not compile any more, due to NIL evolution I suppose.
I look to differences against STM:
The file demo/AVR/NIL-ARDUINOUNO/nilconf.h need to be replace by demo/AVR/NIL-ARDUINOUNO/chconf.h
I then copied the file chconf.h from an STM demo and change the number of threads to 2 as it is in the AVR demo.

The line 18 in demo/AVR/NIL-ARDUINOUNO/main.c

Code: Select all

#include "nil.h"

is replaced by

Code: Select all

#include "chconf.h"


After compilation, at linking step, a get an error that shows me that NIL depends on RT :( . I thinks it must not be the case?
Here is the error:

The asm call to chThdExit cause the failure.

By commenting the line 153 in os/common/ports/AVR/chcore.c, everything build fine.

But the program execution is too fast, an Helloworld message must be send to the serial console every 2 second, but I see it every 10ms. The same for the LED!

What do we need to do to resolve the problem?

Thanks.
regards,

Theo.

Hi Giovanni,

I finally come across this problem.

First of all in the main file,nil.h have to be replaced by ch.h file instead of chconf.h has I wrote in my previous message.

The linker error was still there: undefined reference to `chThdExit
I understood that chThdExit is the function called when a thread exit is infinite loop. This is an undesired stated normally. So I found that in the current implementation of NIL chSysHalt it is the function that played the same role.

If you want to add a precisions please don't hesitate.

Thus by replacing the function chThdExit by chSysHalt, the demo compile successfully.

I have also made two runtime tests on Arduino UnO-328p and Mega-2560 boards. All demos worked as expected but can you please confirm me that the changes that I made are correct.

Thanks.
regards,

Theo.
