NIOS II Eclipse gets stuck in the crt0.S file

Hi,

I have built a very basic QSYS Project with the following components:

  1. NIOS II CPU
  2. 512 Bytes on-chip Memory connected to Data master
  3. 512 Bytes on-chip Memory connected to Instruction master
  4. System ID peripheral
  5. JTAG UART
  6. Interval Timer.

 

In the NIOS II Eclipse, I built the BSP and Application for "hello world". When I run the application, I see the following message in the console and the application stays stuck at this point.

 

Reading symbols from */*_nios.elf...done.

_start () at HAL/src/crt0.S:272

272 movui r2, NIOS2_DCACHE_SIZE -> this happens to be the Assembler code at address 0x0000000.

 

Could someone explain to me what the processor is looking for at this point and also how I could proceed forward?

 

Thanks in advance!
