Beginner LPC2138 Port needs help

Hi everyone. I am a beginner and hope to have some help here to create LPC2138 port using Keil IDE with RealView Compiler.

I have created a new project and created 4 groups of files.

Startup : Startup.s
Source : task.c, queue.c, list.c
Portable : port.c , portISR.c (from ‘FreeRTOS\Source\portable\Keil\ARM7’ dir)
Demo Files : main.c (from ‘FreeRTOS\Demo\ARM7_LPC2129_Keil’ dir)

My list of include paths are as below :

Then I clicked Build , resulting in lots of error messages.
Most repeated are
…\FreeRTOS\Source\include\portable.h(181): error:  #20: identifier "portSTACK_TYPE" is undefined
…\FreeRTOS\Source\include\portable.h(194): error:  #20: identifier "portBASE_TYPE" is undefined

I thought portmacro.h not included so I edited portable.h uglily as below.

#ifdef KEIL_ARM7
    #include "…\…\Source\portable\Keil\ARM7\portmacro.h"

I did this because I didnt know where to define KEIL_ARM7 , but at least portmacro.h then included.

But then, portmacro.h generated too many errors, almost at every inline asm as below :

…\FreeRTOS\Source\include\…\…\Source\portable\Keil\ARM7\portmacro.h(91): error:  #52: expected a macro parameter name

…\FreeRTOS\Source\include\…\…\Source\portable\Keil\ARM7\portmacro.h(110): error:  #40: expected an identifier

Sorry for long post, but I want to be detail. My question now is , what do I do? I heard FreeRTOS easy to port, but I have worked several days at this. Is there any trick that I dont know?

Thanks for listening.

Unfortunately I suspect the Keil compiler (as was shipped with uVision) and the ARM compiler (now shipped with uVision) use different syntax.

When can we expect a uVision port Richard?
