Audio Driver Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Thank You for reading the post.

    I am adding the below ICLASS for Audio driver to perform power management.


    With that addition I am seeing data abort.

    Exception 'Data Abort' (4): Thread-Id=02940002(pth=9b5a5000), Proc-Id=00400002(pprc=8001a308) 'NK.EXE', VM-active=02360002(pprc=9fce2d60) 'udevice.exe'

    Any suggestions on tracing which is causing this issue?

  • Hi GSR,

    you can go through following links for getting more clue about Data Abort:

    Link 1 and Nice Example with explanation

    Hope this helps..

  • It is not because of adding IClass value, but because of IClass the device is entering into the power saving mode.

    The audio driver "omap3_wavedev" is executing some instruction causing the data abort.

    And it is under the device power state code.

    Debug and try to find the code location.

    The above link would be helpful in achieving it.

  • Hi Deepak,

    Thanks for the reply. 

    The second blog uses RA for calculating source of data abort. So do I need to check in omap3_wavedev.dll or devmgr.dll?

    I see that after adding ICLASS we are seeing this data abort. When data abort occurs I see in WAV_IOControl, dwCode is 0x00000001 and uMsg=(dec)0.

    Please let us know any more suggestions.

  • When system goes to different power state "WAV_IOControl" will be called by the power manger with control code for power state.

    While executing the IoControl having specific control code for power management, its giving exception.

    Check if the problem is in "process_PowerManagementMessage()" function ???

    Enable the debug messages for better debugging... in audiomgr.cpp and wavemain.cpp files.

    Hope this may help.

  • Hi GSR,

    There are four dll's in your debug output as i can see. But it all starts from omap3_wavedev.dll so I'd suggest you to look into file and trace the function which is creating this abort. The .map files can be found in release directory. Additionally, if you don't get any meaningful result from there, you can look into file or other map files corresponding to the dlls in your debug output.

    Also, you can try what @Misbah is suggesting.

    Happy Debugging!!
