Code: [Select]
$ modinfo osscore
filename:       /lib/modules/4.8.17-tinycore64/kernel/oss/osscore.ko
author:         4Front Technologies (support@opensound.com)
description:    Open Sound System core services
license:        GPL v2
depends:       
vermagic:       4.8.17-tinycore64 SMP mod_unload

$ sudo modprobe osscore
modprobe: can't load module osscore (kernel/oss/osscore.ko): unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter

..the latest entry to the oss source repo is 2012.

There are various patches in the oss forum, but they don't seem to help and I could not locate a more up to date source repo.

..plus oss doesn't support installing to /usr/local.

I used the source from here:

http://www.4front-tech.com/developer/sources/stable/gpl/oss-v4.2-build2017-src-gpl.tar.bz2

..and it didn't work, even though there were no errors that I could see during the build.

I had some difficulty with the last oss build  and until recently have not had a PC to test any new builds on. 
iirc the last build for tc x86 included the older modified for tc binaries from years back.   The x86_64 version was built without such tc modifications. 

I’ll try again though...

I am not a programmer, but i can google search:

"For anyone else having this issue, I've made a simple patch (attached, and already included in Arch Linux AUR packages oss and oss-git) to make oss work with CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY in Linux kernel 4.8.

Note sure if I got any further down this build path, but it seems that I still have no way to test OSS
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ osstest
subsystem and version: OSS 4.2 (b 2017/201711181512) (0x00040100)
Platform: Linux/i686 4.8.17-tinycore #2017 SMP Sun Mar 5 15:49:22 UTC 2017


NOTICE! You don't have any audio devices available.
        It looks like your audio hardware was not recognized
        by OSS.
               
        If you have installed OSS just a moment ago then it may be necessary to.
        to reboot the system before trying to use the device(s).
tc@box:~$

These patches are already applied to the source

OSSCORE loads and appears to function but the hardware specific driver fails to load since my hardware is not supported,  I'm still looking for older hardware to test with..

built from "http://www.4front-tech.com/developer/sources/stable/gpl/oss-v4.2-build2017-src-gpl.tar.bz2"
I guess I'll submit for x86 repo just incase..
