Note: oss-nonfree has been updated to the latest release (4.2 build 2020):

However it doesn't look like the open-source (GPL) package has been updated yet: (latest files still oss-v4.2-build2019 from 19-Dec-2019)

If/when it is I can update this PKGBUILD similarly.

@je-vv: As discussed in the previous comments, it needs some patches to build with latest kernels, but unfortunately I haven't had time to get it working with the latest version (4.2 build 2019). oss-nonfree (pre-compiled) should be working though, and maybe also oss-git.

Failing to build, any dependency missing?

FYI, interestingly oss-nonfree works with the new version (4.2 build 2019):

alexdw commented on 2019-04-22 17:21 (UTC)

@seawright: No worries, and thanks for your contributions.

Does anyone have build2019 working in Arch? If so which patches did you need to apply? I tried a few mentioned in the oss-git comments but got stuck on this again (in dmesg) when trying to load with soundon: osscore: Unknown symbol GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE (err 0)

seawright commented on 2019-03-20 11:35 (UTC)

@alexdw: Thank you for your offer but I feel I must decline. While I use and therefore have an interest in the ongoing development of OSS4 I do not use Arch and have little knowledge of its package build system. I hope my refusal doesn't result in the Aur OSS* packages becoming unmaintained.

alexdw commented on 2019-03-18 21:59 (UTC)

@seawright: Thanks for the heads-up. I'll try to find some time later this week to update this AUR package (and oss-nonfree if required). Feel free if you would like to make the updatse yourself or even take over as Maintainer. I haven't had an active setup running OSS for a while so updates can take a while as I need to fire up a VM to test.

Re. my previous comment, I haven't tried it but 4front-tech have released an updated source archive which can be downloaded from:

It maybe as simple as updating "pkgver" & "sha512sums" in PKGBUILD to use the updated sources.
