Hello Lin Wang,

 

At least some of the patches accommodating vxWorks 6.x can be seen at this URL.

 

http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~epics-core/epics-base/3.14/revision/12090

 

In particular I suspect that some patches to src/libCom/osi/os/vxWorks/osdSock.h, documented in the above URL, are resolving this particular issue that you are encountering when using the earlier 3.14.11 release with vxWorks 6.x.

 

Jeff

Subject: Problem of "The CA server's beacon address list was empty after initialization"

 

Hello All,

When I install EPICS 3.14.11 on RHEL4.8 for VxWorks6.8/vxWorks-ppc604_long, then create an example app, and load it to MVME5100, it will display "The CA server's beacon address list was empty after initialization?" like this:

 

-> </home/wanglin/vx6_8_ep11App/iocBoot/iocexample/st.cmd
## Example vxWorks startup file

cd "/home/wanglin/vx6_8_ep11App"
value = 0 = 0x0
ld < bin/vxWorks-ppc604_long/example.munch
value = 40806864 = 0x26ea9d0

dbLoadDatabase "dbd/example.dbd"
value = 0 = 0x0
example_registerRecordDeviceDriver pdbbase
value = 0 = 0x0

dbLoadTemplate "db/user.substitutions"
value = 0 = 0x0
dbLoadRecords "db/dbSubExample.db", "user=wanglin"
value = 0 = 0x0

iocInit
Starting iocInit
############################################################################
## EPICS R3.14.11 $R3-14-11$ $2009/08/28 18:47:36$
## EPICS Base built Dec 29 2011
############################################################################
iocRun: All initialization complete
value = 0 = 0x0

-> The CA server's beacon address list was empty after initialization?

 

I do not change any environment variables, and this problem do not happen to me for EPICS 3.14.12.1. It seems that the Bug #541358 mentioned before was fixed on EPICS 3.14.11, and the file iocinf.cpp and online_notify.c of 3.14.11 and 3.14.12.1 are the same.

 

So, what probably results in this problem? And how can I solve it?

 

Thanks,

Lin Wang
