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")

@seawright My laptop sound does work with ALSA drivers.

I will consider QEMU some later time.

@Galaxy You didn't answer my question as to whether your laptop sound works with alsa drivers. I have looked at the spec. for a Lenovo Thinkpad P73 which comes pre-installed with a customised version of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS 64 Bit. It has two audio controllers: nVidia 10de:10f8 & Intel Cannon Lake PCH cAVS (8086:a348) so your sound card must be supportable even if not by vanilla flavoured Ubuntu or Arch. If it works with alsa it should be possible to make it work with oss but either way, if sound is working it should be possible to test oss-git packages in a virtual environment such as Virtual box or even Qemu.

Kmod-link patches no longer required following upstream (opensound) commit.

I have generated four IDENTICAL copies of all the oss man pages using gawk v4 and gawk v5 with a patched and original version of txt2man so currently there is no requirement to downgrade gawk to version 4 even though the warnings produced when building the oss-git package may be a little disconcerting.

The audio player "ossplay" is capable of playing Ogg Vorbis audio files if configured and built with libogg and libvorbis present. The only mention of this is in the source files. I have added it to the optdepends section of PKGBUILD to draw it to users attention. Should it also be added to README.md?

This would appear to be the gawk v5 | setup/Linux/text2man problem: https://github.com/jolmg/txt2man/commit/4cd9ba2cea5b54d472bd00f41ee0d38ef7497521 but it is yet to be confirmed by mvertes - txt2man's original author.

Updated.

It still needs gawk4.

I have updated ossvermagic.patch @ <https://github.com/seawright/oss-git> to fix invalid ELF object error.

`/* Coffelake */
    { PCI_DEVICE(0x8086, 0xa348),
      .driver_data = AZX_DRIVER_PCH | AZX_DCAPS_INTEL_SKYLAKE},`

According to: https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v4.11.8/source/sound/pci/hda/hda_intel.c It has been supported by in kernel (ALSA) drivers since v4.11.8.
