Some RTEMS Questions

there are many things that might lead to the "CPU error" you mentioned.
What kind of debugging environment do you have, it would be great if you
could set breakpoints somewhere early in the timer isr, just to check
out, whether the CPU error occurs IN the timer ISR or due to the fact
that the CPU does not even reach it.

Or you could give a more detailes info about the kind of CPU error that
occurs, what exception is taken, what is the content of the
corresponding syndrome registers?

> Chris, Thank you very much for your response. I managed to correct the task deletion problem by changing some code around. I made the task delete itself after printing out "hello world", instead of the rtems_delete(RTEMS_SELF) being called in the Init task, it is called in my user_task. The problem that I have now seems to involve the Interrupt handler, more specifically the Timer interrupt. I have confirmed that the timer values are set properly my using memory dumps during the driver initialization. However, RTEMS seems to not enter the routine that processes a "tick". It performs an operation that results CPU error when the interrupt occurs. I have tried to look through the interrupt handlers for the PPC405, but it is in assembly and I am hesitant to fiddle around with that level of detail in RTEMS. I was wondering if anybody had experienced similar troubles with the interrupts in general for a PowerPC 405 or 403?  I think that the problem lies in some parameter that is
