Description Arthur Pemberton 2010-05-16 05:29:04 UTC
Description of problem:
Cannot select 'ac97' as a sound device

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a new device
2. sound device
Actual results:
no 'ac99' in drop down list

Expected results:
ac97 as selectable device

Additional info:
- lauchpad result from 2009
- libvirt documentation claiming support since 0.6.0

Due to this bug, I can't get a working sound device with Windows Server 2008, and I assume other versions of Windows as well.

It seems to be worse than that, there is no '-soundhw' being passed to qemu at all, regardless of the driver.

/usr/bin/qemu-kvm -S -M pc -cpu qemu32 -m 1536 -smp 2 -name Clancy -uuid ffd1be69-ba3c-5697-5269-b9901a779d0c -monitor pty -pidfile /var/run/libvirt/qemu//Clancy.pid -localtime -boot c -drive file=/var/lib/libvirt/images/Clancy.img,if=ide,index=0,boot=on -drive file=,if=ide,media=cdrom,index=2 -net nic,macaddr=54:52:00:41:5d:74,vlan=0 -net tap,fd=19,vlan=0 -serial pty -parallel none -usb -usbdevice tablet -vnc

Where exactly are the arguments for kvm-qemu being compiled? I was unable to find the code in the python files.

Looking at libvirt-0.8.1/src/qemu/qemu_conf.c I see that -soundhw is only used for 'pcspk' however, as you can see from the qemu invocation provided above, there is no sound device being passed to qemu at all.
