Hi Eugeniyi,

first of all sorry for delay, my answers are in text below.

No, I mean exactly what's there. What's the problem with disabling main 
oscillator here? i.e. to disable main oscillator you need to set MOSCDIS.

it would be great if you test that since I would rather prefer not to 
break your code on your board(s) :-)

BTW, LM4F120 spec adds following important note on page 219:

When transitioning the system clock configuration to use the MOSC as the 
clock source, the MOSCDIS bit must be set prior to reselecting the MOSC 
or an undefined
system clock configuration can sporadically occur.

so I think that's what you are missing in LM3 spec.

Please let me know if the code runs for you.

Thanks a lot for your testing!
