@erlheh: The forums do appear to be down - perhaps someone who downloaded the patch can add it to the PKGBUILD or (better still) apply it upstream (will be picked up by the oss-git AUR package)?

Unfortunately it's not easy for me to test this any more as I no longer have an active environment with oss running - my main systems all use soundcards with ALSA support now.

The system is 32 bit.

The link to the patch does not seem to work any more. I tried with the 4.14 LTS kernel but I get the same problem - "is not a valid ELF object"

@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:

@erlhel: Did you manage to fix this?
Sorry for the slow response - I was moving home and don't have a 32 bit environment immediately available so would have to set one up to test this.

From dmesg:
"osscore: Unknown symbol _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_ (err 0)"
oss-nonfree worked.
