Olimex has an eval board called SAM7EX256 and they promote freertos. I have the board and have downloaded the freertos version 5.1.2. It turns out that Olimex have a code example that is based on freertos version 4.0.2.As the Olimex changes done to version 4.0.2 appeared to be minimal. I attempted to include the changes in version 5.1.2.
The web server page comes up but the network statistics page shows many dropped packages.
I was curious to see if you have any recommendation for what version I should use?
My compile environment is set up with Eclipse and Yagarto. The evaluation is almost working so it may be a minor detail or it could be related to that I am not using the best version for the compiler setup. Have you heard about a similar problem before and if so what did it relate to?
My changes to 5.1.2 are minimal, namely PHY_ID, powerdown bit inversion and PHY address. In addition I adjusted the clock value to 48.054857Mhz.
I see that some Makefiles are using arm_source only and others thumb_arm mixed. Could this relate to the problem with dropped packages?
