Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 569579
No sound in virtual machine
Last modified: 2010-06-17 13:15:48 EDT
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):
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
no sound output
should have sound output
Linux emerald.hhome 220.127.116.11-174.2.22.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Feb 19 18:55:03 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Hardware is HP Pavilion a1610n with 4 Gb RAM (dual-core AMD 64 Live processor)
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.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 508317 ***
Cole - any pointer to your notes on how to work around this?
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.
