@tedbell: Thanks for the information. I'll have a look at adding this to the PKGBUILD if it isn't applied upstream soon.

Will not compile under kernel 4.15

See here for patch:

Updated (4.2_2017-1) for new release - OSS v4.2 Build 2017:

Now working again with Arch kernel 4.8.

alexdw commented on 2016-12-21 23:54

Note: This does not work with Arch kernel 4.8 with default configuration due to new CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY feature being enabled. Workaround would be to compile a custom kernel with CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY disabled or alternately use oss or oss-git, which include a patch to avoid this issue (a similar patch does not appear to be possible for oss-nonfree as that code seems to be precompiled).

Updated (4.2_2011-3) with a patch to allow compilation with 4.6 kernels.

OSS appears to be broken again in latest (4.0.4) kernel. If I have time over the weekend I'll try to work out a patch for it.

Updated (4.2_2011-2) with patch by "oss117" from OSS forums:
This should fix the compile error for 4.x kernels (tested as working for 4.0.1).

Updated (4.2_2011-1) for build 2011.

When click to "Download tarball" I get the following link:

Shouldn't there be something like "libflashsupport-.." behind it?

alexdw commented on 2014-10-05 23:20

I think the libflashsupport-oss issue should be fixed - all three (oss-nonfree, oss, oss-git) now have their own respective libflashsupport packages.

I wasn't able to solve the permissions warnings though - seems to be for oss-nonfree only so I'm guessing something to do with the way the source file archive? As mentioned before it seems to work fine for me despite the warnings.
