Hello,

Genaral:
I'm working with Montavista Linux 3.1 Embedded Development Kit( pro ) on Motorola M9328MXLADS Evaluation Board( has i.MX1 DragonBall Application Processor on it ).
I'm using NFS Cross Compile.

Problem Description:
When I'm trying to debug my code( via Telnet ) the following announcement appears:
"Segmantation problem".

My code:
#define DDIR_A       (*(volatile unsigned int *)(0x0021C000) // Absulote address
DDIR_A = 0x00000004;                                      // Output signal

Could someone help me? I have heard on "mmap" fuction, is it could be helpful?
Thanks.

From application you need to do something like this:
int fd;
volatile unsigned long *ddir_a;

fd = open("/dev/mem", O_RDWR | O_SYNC);
ddir_a = (volatile unsigned long *)mmap(0,0x1000, PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE, MAP_SHARED, fd, 0x0021C000);

*ddir_a = 0x00000004;

munmap((void *)ddir_a, 0x1000);
close(fd);
