Updated (ac48ed-4) with a patch to allow compilation with 4.6 kernels.

Confirm with latest patch, working again for me. Seems to compile faster with gcc-5 in fact. Great work @alexdw.

Updated (ac48ed-3) with a patch for gcc-5.
See: (the part on "extern inline")

@ruegerjr: Thanks - that makes sense as oss-nonfree (precompiled) hasn't been broken by kernel 4.0.4.

ruegerjr commented on 2015-05-31 00:24

Problem this time is NOT the kernel. It is the recent upgrade of gcc. Package still builds for kernel 4.04 if gcc is downgraded from 5.1.0-4 to 4.9.2-4.

@vaultex: Thanks for the report. I just tried and get the same error on linux 4.0.4. If I have some time over the weekend I'll see if I can work out a patch for it.

Hi there, just installed latest Arch Linux, still cannot get Oss to install properly with latest patched version

Is there anything I can do to solve this,
Im new to Arch and to linux in general...

Thank you!

Updated with patch for Linux kernel 4.0 by "oss117" from the OSS forums - thanks again ruegerjr for the link.

@dinux, @ruegerjr: Thanks for the information. I'll have a look at fixing this package by the end of the day.

A patch exists courtesy of "oss117" at
which should solve the breakage with linux kernal 4.0+, but as currently written would need to be run patch -p2 from "..src/oss/setup", or patch -p1 from "..src/oss", not from directory "..src/oss/setup/Linux" as with other patches in the PKGBUILD. I assume it should work for oss-nonfree and oss as well?
