STM32MP1 support available in SW4STM32

   With System Workbench for Linux, Embedded Linux on the STM32MP1 family of MPUs from ST was never as simple to build and maintain, even for newcomers in the Linux world.
And, if you install System Workbench for Linux in System Workbench for STM32 you can seamlessly develop and debug asymmetric applications running partly on Linux, partly on the Cortex-M4; you can download a short video showcasing this on the ac6-tools website (registration required).

System Workbench for STM32

FreeRTOS multi-threaded debug

After reading through some older posts and OpenOCD documentation, I found the easiest way to enable multi-threaded debugging when using FreeRTOS in a STM32Cube project, is to:

  1. In your Debug Configuration: In the Debugger tab, in the OpenOCD Options field, add the following line (including quotes)
    -c “$_TARGETNAME configure -rtos auto”

  1. Unfortunately this resulted in an error about missing symbols, and had to be corrected by adding the following to FreeRTOSConfig.h file
    //define missing uxTopReadyPriority symbol required by OpenOCD to a constant in tasks.c
    #define uxTopReadyPriority uxTopUsedPriority

After this, I can see information about threads in my System Workbench Debug window:

Notes to System Workbench producers:
- Firstly, thank you for an awesome IDE. Words cannot express my gratitude!
- Any chance you can add a checkbox to enable #1 above?
- How about avoiding the need for #2? Or is the latter a request for STM32CubeMX producers?
