@tedbell: Thanks! There should be information here on uploading to AUR: 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).

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

I'm not set up for that and not sure how to do it. Can I email you the files somehow? I've compiled this one and I will do the same for oss and oss-git

@tedbell: That would be great. Or if you're set up for AUR contributions you could commit it directly? In fact, I could add you as a Co-Maintainer if you want? I don't actively use these OSS packages since I switched to a sound card that had native ALSA support.

I made a PKGBUILD and compiled with the patch from the link. Let me know if you want it.

@tedbell: Thanks for the information. I'll have a look at adding this to the PKGBUILD if it isn't applied upstream soon.

Will not compile under kernel 4.15

See here for patch:

Updated (4.2_2017-1) for new release - OSS v4.2 Build 2017:

Now working again with Arch kernel 4.8.

alexdw commented on 2016-12-21 23:54

Note: This does not work with Arch kernel 4.8 with default configuration due to new CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY feature being enabled. Workaround would be to compile a custom kernel with CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY disabled or alternately use oss or oss-git, which include a patch to avoid this issue (a similar patch does not appear to be possible for oss-nonfree as that code seems to be precompiled).

Updated (4.2_2011-3) with a patch to allow compilation with 4.6 kernels.
