@seawright: I'm not sure it actually makes any difference in Arch Linux since around 2013: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Frequently_asked_questions#Does_Arch_follow_the_Linux_Foundation's_Filesystem_Hierarchy_Standard_(FHS)? https://www.archlinux.org/news/binaries-move-to-usrbin-requiring-update-intervention/ https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2012-March/022625.html

@alexdw I am new to Arch Linux but have quickly realised that its ethos is different to that of other distributions. I am however perplexed that someone (or a general consensus) has deemed it necessary to move system programmes (as indicated by their appearance in section 8 of the man database) such as ossdetect and ossdevlinks from /usr/sbin to /usr/bin and wondered if you (or someone else) could explain the rationale behind that decision and whether it should still apply.

See my reply to Mowgli's post on Open Sound System forum: http://ossnext.trueinstruments.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5882#p21751

This suggests another upstream patch/release will be required to make oss work with 5.2+ kernels: http://ossnext.trueinstruments.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5882

Please note that the current build of OSS v4 (OSS v4.2 build 2019) does not appear to function for 5.2+ kernels.

For oss-nonfree, the error happens during soundon. See error details at: https://pastebin.com/mxU9sgbg The log actually lists every kernel module as being "invalid ELF objects", although this might not be the main culprit.

However, the package still works for the linux-lts kernel (currently 4.19.68-lts) up to 5.1+ kernels (tested for 5.1.19).

Updated (4.2_2019-1) for new release - OSS v4.2 build 2019: http://ossnext.trueinstruments.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=5876

Now working again with Arch (kernel 5.0.8).

Hi! I'm a novice to PKGBUILD. What I did was extract the source and replace the file in the source tarball. Then I updated the sums with makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD because updpkgsums didn't work. I tried doing it your way and the patch seemed to apply ok but I guess it didn't get packaged.

alexdw commented on 2018-02-25 16:16

I'll have a look, though generally I wouldn't want to modify the sources but instead include the patch itself and have the PKGBUILD apply that.

@tedbell: Thanks! There should be information here on uploading to AUR: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository#Uploading_packages But if you prefer to email for me to do it, then I think my address is at the top of the PKGBUILD files (as Maintainer).

tedbell commented on 2018-02-25 16:13

I have the updated oss-linux-v4.2-2017-amd64.tar.bz2 with the patched osscore.c and a PKGBUILD with updated sums.
