(solved) getting "assert failed" on socket() call

Postby mzimmers » Tue Aug 13, 2019 5:18 pm

Hi all -

I'm trying to start an http_server (v3.3-rc) using the example in the docs. I'm getting an error:
C:/esp-idf/components/freertos/queue.c:1442 (xQueueGenericReceive)- assert failed!
Guru Meditation Error: Core 0 panic'ed (LoadProhibited). Exception was unhandled.
I've traced it to this call to socket():

Code: Select all

// from the example:
httpd_handle_t HttpServer::start_webserver(void)
{
    /* Generate default configuration */
    httpd_config_t config = HTTPD_DEFAULT_CONFIG();
    /* Empty handle to esp_http_server */
    httpd_handle_t server = NULL;

    /* Start the httpd server */
    ESP_LOGI(TAG, "calling httpd_start().");
    if (httpd_start(&server, &config) == ESP_OK)

// from httpd_main.c
esp_err_t httpd_start(httpd_handle_t *handle, const httpd_config_t *config)
{
	...
	if (httpd_server_init(hd) != ESP_OK) {
	
static esp_err_t httpd_server_init(struct httpd_data *hd)
{
	int fd = socket(PF_INET6, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks...

The snippets of code you posted look OK to me, possibly the problem is being triggered by something else?

Can you please decode the backtrace addresses that lead up to the failed assertion, for some context? There are a lot of possible functions which can call xQueueGenericReceive().

Hi Angus -

Is this far enough? Thanks for looking at this.

Hmm, that's not that informative... Can you try enabling heap poisining? Maybe something is drawing outside the lines of a buffer, overwriting a queue.

I agree with Sprite that it's probably something like that, and enabling the "heap poisoning" debugging feature may find it.

The other odd thing here is that the line numbers in the call stack don't seem to show a valid call stack for the LWIP included in IDF v3.3-rc. There are three possibilities I can think of:

- Submodule mismatch, so the LWIP source isn't the version included with 3.3-rc. This which may also explain the crash ("git submodule update --init --recursive" may be worthwhile just to be sure.)

OR

- There is a bug in the ESP32 gcc 5 toolchain that means line numbers shown by addr2line are sometimes inaccurate. Re-running addr2line and adding the flags -pfia may help (the function name is always correct even if the line number is off.) This is fixed in gcc 8.

OR

- Stack is being corrupted as well.

Hi guys -

Thanks for the ideas. I don't think this was a submodule mismatch; I'd already done the recursive submodule update.

Light heap poisoning was on, so I changed it to comprehensive. Here's the stack trace:

Just a thought, and I don't know if it applies to your set of IDF/compiler, but are you using PSRAM? Does it still happen if you disable it?

Hi Permal - thanks for the suggestion. I'm not sure I fully understand the problem...we're using the WROVER module in our product. How do I go about disabling PSRAM? I don't see a setting for it in my sdkconfig file.

Thanks...

The Wrover does have PSRAM.

Component Config -> ESP32 Specific -> Support for external, SPI-connected RAM.
