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")

Does anybody have patch "oss-4.9999-001_oss4_linux_4.11_osscore_fix_git.patch.txt" for error

osscore.c:477:23: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type 'const struct cred'

Please post it.

I've failed to install OSS (kernel 4.17.3-1). oss-git is compiled without errors but after executing command "sudo soundon" I receive error notification that file "stdarg.h" is not found.

I tried also without success to set CPATH variable before "soundon"


Is it possible to fix this?

@tedbell: Thanks for the information. Hopefully this is applied to the upstream oss SourceForge git repo soon.

Will not compile under kernel 4.15

See here for patch:

Updated (891ddd2-7) to remove the various Linux kernel and gcc patches which have now been applied upstream in the SourceForge git repo (the oss source for this package).

Updated (ac48ed0-6) with a patch to make oss work with kernel 4.8 compiled with CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY (enabled by default for the Arch Linux kernel).
(For more details see thread on OSS forums:

Updated (ac48ed-4) with a patch to allow compilation with 4.6 kernels.

Confirm with latest patch, working again for me. Seems to compile faster with gcc-5 in fact. Great work @alexdw.

alexdw commented on 2015-06-01 22:49

Updated (ac48ed-3) with a patch for gcc-5.
See: (the part on "extern inline")

@ruegerjr: Thanks - that makes sense as oss-nonfree (precompiled) hasn't been broken by kernel 4.0.4.
