Description Stephen Haffly 2010-03-01 14:03:10 EST
Description of problem:
I have made a virtual machine using virt-manager 0.8.2 in Fedora 12, 64 bit, which reports that it is using qemu as the hypervisor when I view the host details and kvm as the hypervisor and /usr/bin/qemu-kvm as the emulator with i686 as the emulated platform.  I installed Vista Home Premium into this virtual machine.  Although it reports that it sees the audio setup and reports that it is working correctly, I have no sound output from Vista.  Sound is working fine for Fedora 12.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Seems to be very consistent.  I have read on Fedora Forum that others have been experiencing this same problem

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create virtual machine
2. install Vista

Actual results:
no sound output

Expected results:
should have sound output

Additional info:

Known issue, there are several bugs about this filed against libvirt. Pretty soon I'll be writing up instructions how to work around this. Duping to a libvirt bug for now.

Cole - any pointer to your notes on how to work around this?
Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2010-06-17 10:03:00 EDT
Making it work depends on some backport patches that aren't built yet (but I'll do it today, I swear :) Once that build is available, I'll write up notes in the duped bug.

Excellent, thanks Cole.
