Hi,

I have an MPC8560 custom board which is currently booting up
using
VxWorks 5.5.1. I am porting it to VxWorks 6.3 using 5.5.1 bootrom.
The 5.5.1
bootrom has networking and PCI enabled and it boots the 6.3 kernel
that I
built from the network.

The initialization seems to proceed normally but at the end of
usrRoot(),
it seems to hang. I printed out all the tasks and their states as the
last
statement of usrRoot(). All the tasks except tUsrRoot() seem to be in
a stopped
state. I do not have a debugger attached, and am not able to figure
out why
all the tasks enter stopped state.

I understand from WRS documentation that in 6.x there is a new
task
tJobTask() which kills tRootTask(). Also from their documentation, I
understand
that tasks go into stop state when stopped by a debugger. There is no
debugger
attached.

Any clues as to why the tasks are being stopped ? Any hints on
approaches
to debug this problem are welcome.
