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.

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

This is exactly the post I meant. The link to the article that explains the solution is not helpful to me as I'm not strong in programming.

@Next7: Did you manage to find it? Best I could find was this archived post which links to some info on how to fix it:

Not sure what's up with oss - the forums have been down for a while now. Might be worth contacting 4Front to get an update:

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?

alexdw commented on 2018-02-18 20:28

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

tedbell commented on 2018-02-18 19:50

Will not compile under kernel 4.15

See here for patch:
