Re: AMD SB700 ALC888 ossrecord not working

As your microphone works with Alsa when plugged into the green jack I would suggest changing the green jack mode from front to input using:
ossmix jack.green.mode input
You may also find that ossxmix is easier to use when experimenting with the various mixer controls.

Sounds like a steam engine.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that OSS V4 none free unlicensed would occasionally sound like a steam engine as an incentive to purchase a full license. I don't know whether the code that provides this is still present in the GPL licensed version that I have built from source but the symptom I...

Re: Relinking the OSS kernel modules failed

If you are using kernel version 4.15.1 you will need to patch osscore.c (see viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5862 ) otherwise the required kernel module osscore.ko will fail to build.

Re: Kernel 4.15 osscore.c compile fix

Thanks for the patch! :) Do you want to submit it to the main repo (here, I think: https://sourceforge.net/p/opensound/git/ci/master/tree/)? Not sure that it would get approved. I see that your merge request from Christmas 2016 is still awaiting approval. I've no objection if you want to include th...

Re: Using OSS with Alsa

The problem isn't with the /dev/ tree but with interfacing with the actual hardware. If you had two soundcards it may be possible to use one with alsa and the other with oss but the configuration would be a nightmare as left to their own devices each driver would try to auto-configure to use both so...

Kernel 4.15 osscore.c compile fix

Following changes to linux/timer.h in Kernel version 4.15 osscore.c will not compile. So that, a new "magic patch" might be needed to compile OSS4 for Linux kernel 4.15. Right? I'm no magician but, for what it's worth, I have wrote the following patch: --- oss-v4.2-build2017-src-gpl-orig/s...

Re: Future of OSS on Linux

The OSS sound drivers that were formally included in the Linux kernel had the same genesis as the Open Sound System discussed in this forum. See http://www.opensound.com/ossfree/ for details. There is also README file in the kernel documentation that explains the situation with OssFree and its relat...

Re: OSS cuckoo module and modern kernels

Have you tried making first parameter NULL? e.g. snd_card_new (NULL, index[ncards], ... Cuckoo has never worked for me. I get: aplay: main:722: audio open error: Cannot allocate memory but if it worked with an earlier kernel you may be in luck. Another problem I have is that the module name appears ...

Re: Total noob. Please help.

There are no open source drivers for Lynx soundcards for any operating system as the manufacturer will only provide interface specs. under a none disclosure agreement. You are probably using a version of the commercial software operating with a demo licence. If you could post the output of: ossinfo ...

Two pages which hopefully you have already read before purchasing a commercial license: http://manuals.opensound.com/devlists/lynxtwo.html http://www.opensound.com/license.html These should have answered your first question. Before asking does Ardour work with OSS you should check whether OSS works ...

If so, try:

Re: Volume control

What version of mpg123 are you using? Version 1.17.0 is oss4 aware provided that the configure script locates the correct version of soundcard.h ie. /usr/lib/oss/include/sys/soundcard.h and not one provided by the kernel. You may need to provide a link: sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/oss/include/sys/soundcard...
