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: Fedora 20 - Dummy Output device - plays using ossplay

If you are using pulse audio as a sound server add the following line to /etc/pulse/default.pa load-module module-oss device="/dev/dsp" sink_name=output source_name=input mmap=0 and comment out the line "load-module module-udev-detect" eg. #load-module module-udev-detect as OSS4 ...

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 ...

Re: Total noob. Please help.

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 ...

Re: WMMixer and OSS4

Have you compiled wmmixer to use a non-standard configuration file? If not it should be ~/.wmmixer which appears to be a directory on your box. if launching wmmixer from an xterm as opposed to a drawer, does it report "Compiled with OSS version 40100"? Could you post the output of: ossmix ...

Can you adjust volume with ossxmix?
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...

What compiler are you using to build osscore?
If gcc-4.8 try using an earlier version gcc-4.7 or gcc-4.6 to check whether the outcome is any different.

Re: Reading levels from command line... possible?

Ok so I'm wrong. Definitely eight bits per channel but must be unsigned which in theory would allow up to 0xffff or 255:255 Don't know how to test other than driving an external input with an audio signal generator. Suspect the A to D converter would saturate before that level was reached but don't ...
