The latest support Intel HDA is 0x8c20, and I am using a348. If your sound card is not listed there, it is not supported.

  • 8c20 ("8 Series/C220 Series Chipset High Definition Audio Controller")
  • a348 ("Cannon Lake PCH cAVS")

I'm sorry but I'm not ready to post the PKGBUILD file right now as it's a bit messy and tuned to my needs. I'll try to do it later.

@Next7 Would you post the new PKGBUILD here or at https://github.com/GalaxyAUR/oss-git ?

Some good news for oss users to start the new year. It seems that developers adopted corrections kindly provided here by seawright and now the package and oss module are built with less troubles. Now "galaxy.patch" is not needed and also there's no need to modify files "install.sh" and "osscore.c". Now it requires only one intervention to make directory "/usr/lib/modules/5.10.4-arch2-1/extramodules/oss".

@seawright Huge thanks again! Now it works.

@Next7 If "uname -m" gives result "x86_64" add this line (without quotes): "#define HAVE_UNLOCKED_IOCTL 1" at start of file /usr/lib/oss/build/osscore.c As root run: sh /usr/lib/oss/build/install.sh followed by: soundoff && sync && soundon

@seawright Sorry, I cannot help to find the version of the kernel where this error occurred first time. I have upgraded from version 5.8.8 to 5.9.10.

@Next7 Concur with your description of the problem which I have been able to re-produce. I will investigate further but I have higher priority demands on my time at the moment. Suggest rolling back to an earlier (5.8.x) kernel. If you want to investigate further yourself it would be useful to find the minor version (or release client) where the problem first appears to see if there is anything in the change log that would account for it.

Kernel 5.9.10 has brought another error. Now the package is built as usual without problems and after executing the "soundon" command the module itself is also built without problems (and it does exist in "extramodules/oss" directory). But after the "soundon" command the following output is produced:


Relinking OSS kernel modules for ""
This may take few moments - please stand by...
Relinking OSS kernel modules finished
SNDCTL_SYSINFO: Inappropriate ioctl for device
SNDCTL_SYSINFO: Inappropriate ioctl for device

OSS started OK

But in reality the sound output does not work. It's impossible to execute even the "osstest" command. That command produces the same error "SNDCTL_SYSINFO: Inappropriate ioctl for device".

@Next7 Amended patch. Had to add two back slashes for one to appear on this board.

Next7 commented on 2020-10-10 07:54

@seawright

Many thanks again. Now module is built and works but it's important to watch out misspelling in the patch probably caused by the board's formatting rules: "$N_" should be "$N\_".
