Just informing you guys that it is now possible to use Skype with OSS without PulseAudio! You can obtain the corresponding package here -> https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/skype_oss_wrapper-git/
I have also modified the wiki entry for it -> https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Open_Sound_System#Skype
Hope it's ok to post here :)

@alexdw: While you'll be updating the package you might also fix some (minor) stuff on that occasion: In depends/makedepends 'gcc', 'sed', 'make' and 'libtool' are totally redundant since they are part of the base-devel group and thus needed by makepkg anyways (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pkgbuild#makedepends).
Also constantly changing directory into $srcdir is an unnecessary step, since makepkg already switches into that directory by itself (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Creating_packages#The_build.28.29_function).
In conflicts, 'oss-linux', 'oss-linux-free' and 'oss-testing' are totally out of date and should be replaced by 'oss-git' and 'oss-nonfree'.
(Of course similar changes need to be done for the other two packages)

Keep up the good work! :)

@nuc: Thanks for the new version notification.

I'll have a look at updating the PKGBUILD to 2010 on Monday - I'm away travelling for work at the moment and won't have access to my primary (Linux) PC until then.

Hm seems they modified the upstream package on 26 August, I wonder why.
However the 2009 build is outdated anyways and the PKGBUILD should be updated to 2010.

Hi,

The sha512 checksum failed for oss-v4.2-build2009-src-gpl.tar.bz2

I think the sha512sum is outdated (or just wrong, because none of the files at http://www.4front-tech.com/developer/sources/stable/gpl/ check to the sum in the PKGBUILD)

PKGBUILD: 116df88ffca4515b9fb2b5f25cebc5d5f4aacc26500d387d8db09d38edb4bacb9a82f7b4fe5669ebddbc42ef811eeb2c9a81c2bbd6953c16e7894544c0e6e092

@Nowaker: OK, thanks - done. I'll have a look at fixing oss-git (if necessary) some time this week.

@steadybright: If you use the updated package it should work for now. I can't say it will work after every Linux upgrade - 3.8.0, 3.10.0, 3.10.7 and 3.14.0 all caused issues so future upgrades might also.

Nowaker commented on 2014-04-14 01:16

@alexdw, Because you are a maintainer of oss-nonfree, please feel free to adopt this package and oss-git - I just disowned them. Thanks.

steadybright commented on 2014-04-14 01:13

@alexdw: The patch you posted worked for me as well (3.14.0-5). Thanks! So do I just install this patch after each Linux update to get oss working again?

alexdw commented on 2014-04-13 16:33

I've applied the same simple patch I used for oss-nonfree and changed the main source file to the latest build (2009) - seems to work for me (osstest runs with 3.14.0):

Same problem as noted by seschwar on 2014-04-06: OSS does not work with 3.14.05-ARCH

I received nearly identical message as seschwar pasted below.
