Re: OSS fails to build against Linux 4.0 [SOLVED]

Such problems have not been reported (at least, on this forum) for experiments with gcc-4.8 and its older versions. Updating from a major version to another (e.g. 4.8 to 5.1) or even a minor version to another (e.g v4.3 to 4.8 ) *will* cause breakage between kernel and modules when they are not com...

Re: OSS fails to build against Linux 4.0 [SOLVED]

it appears that it wasn't Linux 4.0.4 which prevents me from building oss but a new version of gcc (5.1.0). It may happen. Similar problems were reported for gcc-4.8 (they were somehow fixed). Please keep us informed about such problems. For Ubuntu users: It is not difficult to switch to an older v...

Not at all... Working just fine, here with Linux v4.0.4: it both auto-compiled the new modules on kernel update and I still can build the package under v4.0.4.

Patch to build OSS against Linux 4.0

Well, let's reply my own question with my own patch... There were two issues: ⋅ a test in the configuration scripts, supposed to detect Linux kernel v2.4 was mistaking v4.0 for v2.4... ⋅ read_cr4() and write_cr4() have been renamed into __read_cr4() and __write_cr4() in Linux 4.0...

OSS fails to build against Linux 4.0 [SOLVED]

Linux 4.0 is released, but the current OSS release fails to build against it (problems with include files, apparently). Any chance to get a working version or a patch against the current one ?

Re: OSS cuckoo module and modern kernels

Could any devel look at this issue?. You may ask them directly. This exactly what I'm doing here, in this forum... I have no other "direct" way to do this ! It seems that cesium was busy with the cuckoo module Good to hear... PulseAudio does not make sense in the first place. It's USELESS...

Re: OSS cuckoo module and modern kernels

As time passes, less and less pieces of software support native OSS (alas !!!), and the cuckoo is pretty much the only solution with them, unless you are ready to put up with the Pulseaudio non-sense (a sound demon is totally useless with OSS anyway, thanks to the transparent virtual mixer). 1.

OSS cuckoo module and modern kernels

Did anyone manage to compile a cuckoo module for current (3.1x) kernels ?... I tried with Linux v3.19.2, and lamentably failed. Beside header issues (linux/autoconf.h and asm/system.h) which can't be found any more (I replaced the '#include <linux/autoconf.h>' with '#include </usr/src/linux/include/...

Re: Unknown HD AUDIO CODEC

The codec is unknown, but does everything else still work? To be honest, beside osstest and ossxmix (which both seem to be working fine), I didn't extensively test the audio on this motherboard, the reason being it's in a PC that I only use as a firewall/NAS/web server (there're not even speakers c...

Unknown HD AUDIO CODEC

I recently bought a new Mini-ITX motherboard (ASRock AD2550-ITX) and OSS doesn't have a matching CODEC for it. Here is what I get from /var/log/messages: kernel: oss_hdaudio: HDA codec 0x80862880 not known yet and here is the output of lspci -vv for the HD Audio chip: 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Cor...

Re: OSS support in firefox

Here is the same patch as for Firefox, but for Pale Moon v25.0, with the rejects from configure.in sorted out. You will have to delete the configure script and run autoconf (v2.13) to restore that script from the patched configure.in file.

Re: OSS v4.2 build 2010

However, I'm a little disappointed... Because OSS v4.2 build 2010 still doesn't compile properly under Linux v3.14+ and still requires the patch I published for build 2009... Hopefully, that fix will get integrated in build 2011...
