For those who compiled with gcc 8.2.1: if the kernel ooopses on oss_hdaudio loading change to -O2, -O3 generates floating point instructions

Yes, compiled with the PKGBUILD from Galaxy.

As I said, "Compiles with some warnings". An interesting one:

 warning: In the GNU C Library, "makedev" is defined
 by <sys/sysmacros.h>. For historical compatibility, it is
 currently defined by <sys/types.h> as well, but we plan to
 remove this soon. To use "makedev", include <sys/sysmacros.h>
 directly. If you did not intend to use a system-defined macro
 "makedev", you should undefine it after including <sys/types.h>.
       if (mknod (dev, node_m, makedev (major, minor)) == -1)
Hence the patch suggested by Galaxy on 2018-08-29.

Don't think OSS is broken. Compiles with some warnings but no errors on Ubuntu: Version info: OSS 4.2 (b 2017/201811092226) (0x00040100) OSS_HG Platform: Linux/x86_64 4.18.16-041816-generic #201810200431 SMP from ossinfo. gcc (Ubuntu 8.2.0-1ubuntu2~18.04) 8.2.0 Wouldn't have thought the .1 difference in gcc would be that significant. Could one (or more) of the Arch specific patches be causing the problem?

@Next7: Unfortunately I don't currently have an OSS setup to test, but it might be worth posting on the OSS forums to see if others have successfully compiled with 4.18 linux kernel:

Next7 commented on 2018-11-02 04:05

Another update and another oss' failure: package built for kernel v4.17 failed to load with kernel v4.18.16 and new package for kernel v4.18 and gcc 8.2.1+20180831-1 failed to build.

Patch for glibc 2.23+

However, even with patch from seawright, the kmod cannot be loaded as: osscore: Unknown symbol _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_ (err 0).

seawright HUGE thanks for the response and patch. This patch did the job! I've made only some syntax corrections.

seawright commented on 2018-07-22 16:19

Oh Dear, code tags didn't work as I expected and removed newline characters. The final 4 linux closing tags shouldn't be there either.

That's a little better. Replaced "code" with "pre". Still trailing tags though and slashes after linux replaced with a space and ="" on #include lines.

seawright commented on 2018-07-22 16:08

I'm not an Arch Linux user so can't verify that this will work with Arch but checked with latest kernel on Ubuntu.
