[ECOS] Trouble using lwIP (driver crash...)
Mon Apr 3 13:14:00 GMT 2006
I have downloaded the latest source for eCos with the ported version of
lwIP (1.1.1) and I have some trouble with it.
With the eCos Configuration Tool, I choose i386 PC target with i82559
ethernet template with the lwip_eth package and this configuration doesnt
compile. I got cyg/fileio/limits.h: No such file or directory error. In
fact, the directory cyg/fileio has not been created by the config tool. I
added the POSIX File IO compatibility layer package and now eCos builds
without errors. I guess that this package should be included by default
I never used lwIP so I wanted to start with the nc_test_xxx examples to test
it, but nc_test_master.c is not given, so I started porting it to use lwIP.
The biggest problem I had with the code was that gethostbyname() and struct
hostent that are undefined.
struct hostent is defined in netdb.h or dns.h. I dont have dns.h (the
directory ns has not been created by the config tool), so I must use
netdb.h, but by doing this, gethostbyname() gets defined to a function
Thats not really what I was expecting
Does lwIP supports a call to gethostbyname()? If yes, how can I do it?
For now, Im using the IP4_ADDR macro and nc_test_master compiles.
my real problem. Is anybody have used lwIP with the i82559 driver?
When I run nc_test_master, the first packet sent triggers the ARP Protocol.
An ARP Request is sent, the reply from the slave is sent and the master
sends the first packet (NC_REQUEST_TCP_ECHO), but when the master receives
the ACK from the slave, I got:
ASSERT FAIL: <5>if_i82559.c PacketRxReady() No prev EL
Can anyone help me with this?
If someone has already the nc_test_master.c file modified for lwIP and can
send it to me, I will try it to see if it is the modification I made to the
nc_test_master.c file that causes this or something else (maybe eth_drv.c?).
