qemu windows vista guest does not see the sound card
Last modified: 2009-08-07 08:40:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Sound device not detected under vista
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Run the virtualization guest (it's windows vista) and windows vista does not see the sound card.
vista should see the sound card
- The version numbers of virt-manager, libvirt, qemu-kvm
This is probably caused by sound devices being disabled in the guest if SELinux is enabled in the host:

screen shot of my virtual windows desktop
[adler@office01 ~]$ rpm -q virt-manager libvirt qemu-kvm
also, notice in the command line for qemu-kvm, there is no reference to sound hardware.
The virtual setup for the windows guest was created through an upgrade from fc10. I did not create a new virtual guest from scratch and then load the windows OS. That was done when my desktop was running fc10.
Sorry for the delayed response Stephen
This sounds like bug #508317
Because of SELinux, libvirt currently disables sound cards until this feature is implemented:
