Hello everyone , 

 

I written a PID controller in NiosII, hello_world_small,yesterday, and everyting was OK. 

I change some codes just now, and I get message : 

 

Errors(3 items) 

address 0xbfdc of PID1.elf section,'bss' is not withinregion'onchip_memory' 

address 0xbdfc of PID1.elf section ,'onchip_memory' is not within region'onchip_memory' 

make:***[PID1.elf]Error 1 

 

 

And I check the Run configurations,the message is : 

 

No ELF file path has been selected. 

 

What's going on?:( How to generate the ELF file?:confused:

Could you please give a Screenshot of your QSYS-System and from the configuration of the NIOS inside the QSYS-System? 

I think there could be the Problem. 

If not, please send a Screenshot of the BSP-Editor (Linker-Script-Tab). 

 

If your Project is error free, then an elf-File will be created and could be seen under Run Configurations.

Seems to be everything okay. 

Could you please try make a completely new SW-Project. Sometimes the NIOS EDS is hanging on some old settings...
