I got a problem when starting oss.
From dmesg:
"osscore: Unknown symbol _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_ (err 0)"
oss-nonfree worked.
Installed packages:

The system is 32 bit.

@nuc: Thank you for the new version notification; I'll update the AUR OSS packages (oss, oss-git, oss-nonfree) soon.

@kgunders: As a (rather belated) update, I've submitted the patches as a merge request to the OSS git repo on SourceForge (https://sourceforge.net/p/opensound/git/ci/master/tree/), and (as far as I can tell) they have been accepted.

Updated (4.2_2011-6) with a patch to make oss work with kernel 4.8 compiled with CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY (enabled by default for the Arch Linux kernel).

Quick update - I've found that the issue with kernel 4.8 is the new CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY feature (more details in the oss forum thread: http://ossnext.trueinstruments.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5837). oss works with linux 4.8 if your kernel is compiled without CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY. I'll have a look at writing a patch to make it work with this feature (which is enabled by default for the Arch 4.8 kernel).

@alexdw - Same exact thing here (just so you know). Thanks for all your work!

Confirmed broken for me with kernel 4.8.4 (possibly all 4.8) - osstest causes segmentation fault with any of the oss packages (oss, oss-git, oss-nonfree). I might not have too much time to investigate at the moment, but for a start have posted a topic on the OSS forums: http://ossnext.trueinstruments.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5837

@kgunders: Thank you! I think I've posted a patch or two on the OSS forums before but I haven't looked at getting them directly upstream. I'll have a look this weekend after checking what's going on with kernel 4.8.2.
