Has FreeRTOS.h been renamed as FreeRTOSConfig.h?

Posted by gjohn689qw on February 5, 2019

I'm trying to build a V10 demo project. Files from the "common" folder are looking for file freertos.h. I can't find one, but there is a file freertosconfig.h which appears to have the same content. So was this file renamed? George

Has FreeRTOS.h been renamed as FreeRTOSConfig.h?

Not in a hundred years :-)

The location is :


It is part of the kernel, you should not change it. It will need something like -I amazon-freertos/lib/include

FreeRTOSConfig.h is entirely yours: you can configure the properties and behaviour of the kernel in that file.

Make sure that the -I compiler option for all modules point to the same instance of FreeRTOSConfig.h. Otherwise you can get problems that are difficult to understand.
