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 also get GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE error -2. I get errors like this, seemingly for every kernel module: ".../kernel/crypto/cmac.ko.xz is not a valid ELF object" I tried both the github master link below and the AUR package. I did not understand which was the latest or most suitable. I did not understand the comment before this one, if there was something I should change in the installation. What I use is 32 bit linux. archlinux32. I use the pentium4 architecture but compile the components with march=i686. The kernel is 5.3.1-arch1-1.0.ARCH. It's an Intel Pentium 4 computer.

Pull request sent. Note: Should be patch -p3 <... in PKGBUILD to apply patch as left a/ and b/ in diff file.

It would appear that a 2nd kmod-link patch is required to fix the other Makefile in the /usr/lib/oss/build directory.

The install script also requires patching but it's too long to include in a comment. Would it be OK to email it to the package maintainer?

After upgrading Linux kernel from 5.1.21 to 5.2.3 with the exception of osscore.ko kernel modules failed to compile. Build list gave following error report:

The package compiles fine, but the osscore module still throws a GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE error, except it is now error -2 instead of 0.

Using GCC 9.0.1. Any fix?

Galaxy commented on 2019-07-24 11:47

I merge the version on <>.

Added "-fno-pic -fno-PIE" for GCC > 5.

And change to "-O2" from "-O3".

export CC=gcc-5

export CXX=g++-5

export CFLAGS="-march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector-strong"

export CXXFLAGS="-march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector-strong"

That's all I added to the PKGBUILD, which worked for a while, although it seems I'm having trouble again with latest kernel. I've just given up again to be honest.

@Xylemon, Would you share your patch that make oss-git compile ?

Xylemon commented on 2019-07-22 20:48

I sadly can not get this to load unless I mod the script to compile with GCC5 (this is also with the GalaxyAUR Git repo). With latest GCC(9), osscore fails to load with this message:

[37591.137560] usbcore: deregistering interface driver oss_usb

[37613.232300] osscore: Unknown symbol GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE (err -2)

Unfortunately, another issue pops up when using OpenAL, see here:,1064.0.html

I hope these issues can be resolved.
