Re: [fedora-virt] Fedora 12 host and windowsXP guest - No Sound from guest

thanks Dor,

looking at the logs you seem to have a point:

LC_ALL=C PATH=/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin QEMU_AUDIO_DRV=none /usr/bin/qemu-kvm -S -M pc-0.11 -m 1024 -smp 1 -name winxp -uuid 8
8b53573-a3c1-3e12-8703-ea3fc8580493 -monitor unix:/var/lib/libvirt/qemu/winxp.monitor,server,nowait -localtime -boot c -drive file
=/var/lib/libvirt/images/winxp.img,if=ide,index=0,boot=on,format=raw -drive file=/home/daniel/ISO/WINXP_SP2_PRO.iso,if=ide,media=c
drom,index=2 -net nic,macaddr=52:54:00:62:66:ed,vlan=0,name=nic.0 -net tap,fd=18,vlan=0,name=tap.0 -serial pty -parallel none -usb
 -usbdevice tablet -vnc -k en-gb -vga cirrus -soundhw es1370

I noticed the QEMU_AUDIO_DRV=none variable here which is how virt-manager is trying to start the vm. Shouldn't that be QEMU_AUDIO_DRV=pa in the case of Fedora 12? How can I change that value, so virt-manager starts the vm correctly?

Hi all,

I can't get any sound out of a windows xp guest. I've tried <sound
model='es1370'/> and <sound model='ac97'/> and windows seems to
recognize them ok but no sound at all.

My audio setup in the host is fairly simple, fedora12 and an integrated
sound card + a USB headset, both are successfully detected by fedora and
I can switch between the 2 without problems.

I feel like something is missing here, the host_sound and guest_sound
doesn't seem to be integrated properly. What setting can I change to get
sound out of the guest?

It might be a qemu issue - there are several config options for qemu package: --audio-drv-list=oss/alsa/sdl on upstream code non worked reliably for me, in the past it did work, so its probably a regression.

Thanks in advance,
