ESP32-CAM Guru Meditation Error: Core 1 panic'ed (LoadStoreAlignment)

Postby sky5media » Fri Apr 17, 2020 5:49 am

Dear Community,

I am posting it here too because I am not sure where the problem is, is it esp-idf or something else.

Development Board: ESP32-CAM
Module or chip used: ESP32-S
IDF version: v4.0
Build System: Make
Compiler version: xtensa-esp32-elf-gcc (crosstool-NG esp-2019r2) 8.2.0

I am trying to build latest micropython for ESP32-CAM. Board has 8M PSRAM chip (IPUS IPS1704L-SQ)

When trying to allocate 160 KB buffer with:
heap_caps_calloc(_fb2->size, 1, MALLOC_CAP_SPIRAM)
I am getting Guru Meditation Error
Guru Meditation Error: Core 1 panic'ed (LoadStoreAlignment). Exception was unhandled.

I tried both CONFIG_SPIRAM_USE_CAPS_ALLOC=y and CONFIG_SPIRAM_USE_MALLOC=y
same result

Some debugging info:

Code: Select all

heap_caps_get_free_size(MALLOC_CAP_DEFAULT) -> -1431534259 (negative)
heap_caps_get_free_size(MALLOC_CAP_INTERNAL) -> 172184
heap_caps_get_free_size(MALLOC_CAP_SPIRAM) -> -1431655771 (negative)
heap_caps_get_free_size(MALLOC_CAP_8BIT) -> -1431501531 (negative)
heap_caps_get_free_size(MALLOC_CAP_32BIT) -> -1431483587 (negative)
heap_caps_get_free_size(MALLOC_CAP_DMA) -> 154240

esp_get_free_heap_size() -> 2863433037
esp_spiram_get_size() -> 8388608
esp_himem_get_free_size() -> 4325376
esp_himem_get_phys_size() -> 4325376
esp_himem_reserved_area_size() -> 131072
Please notice that heap_caps_get_free_size(MALLOC_CAP_SPIRAM) returns negative value.

himem API seems to be working and can recognize and use PSRAM chip.

When using CONFIG_SPIRAM_USE_MEMMAP=y
heap_caps_get_free_size(MALLOC_CAP_SPIRAM) is obviously 0, but

Code: Select all

(uint8_t*) calloc(_fb2->size, 1);
ain't working either

When dumping or trying to get info about heap with MALLOC_CAP_SPIRAM getting same Guru Meditation Error after which device restarts

Same behavior on 2 different boards of the same type

Depending on CONFIG_SPIRAM_USE I am getting Guru Meditation Error either when calling :

Code: Select all

(uint8_t*) calloc(_fb2->size, 1);
or when doing:

Code: Select all

(uint8_t*) heap_caps_calloc(_fb2->size, 1, MALLOC_CAP_SPIRAM | MALLOC_CAP_8BIT);

Tried in 2 same boards from different producer, Espressif and DM DIY More with same results.

I spent 5 days trying to debug the problem without any luck, please help!
