Is build 1001 for FreeBSD broken?

Postby rscow » Sat Mar 24, 2007 6:29 pm

I reinstalled OSS on my FreeBSD box after I reinstalled FreeBSD 6.2. I had previously used OSS build 1000, and it installed and worked fine. When I got around to reinstalling BSD, the new version build 1001 of OSS was available. I cannot get it to run. It installs, but when I run osstest or ossinfo it can't confire the card or run the sound test. Also, it asks if I have a non v4.x version of OSS installed.

Is there somewhere I can d/l the 1000 build?

Thanks

what is the error?


Build 1001 is working just fine on FreeBSD 6.2

You need to ensure that you have the kernel sources (ssys) installed.

Here is the error:

$osstest
SNDCTL_SYSINFO: failed: Device not configured
Cannot get system information. Perhaps you are not running OSS 4.x
but some slightly incompatible sound sybsystem.
$

What do I need to do to install or verify installation of ssys?

Thanks

I went into sysinstall and installed /src/sys and ssys.

Then I reinstalled oss.

Still no joy. Same error.

Dev, I still can't get build 1001 to work. I have installed ssys, etc., via sysinstall.

Oddly 1000 ran fine. Is there a way I can get build 1000 to try again?

Thanks

Hi,

We have rebuilt the build 1001 package and have verified it on 2 machines. Kindly download the latest version from our website.

Where to find "ssys"?

I'm a newbie (having used FreeBSD-RELEASE 6.2 for a few weeks), and I can't find "ssys" in the post-installation menu. The closest thing I could find was "sys", to be installed in "/usr/src/sys" in the menu Configure -> Distributions -> src. Is that the one?
