"It is complicated :-)  In Fedora &gt;= 11 we currently disable all use of

on a new version of the patch which sets up audio-over-VNC<ref>http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/VirtVNCResourceTunnel</ref>, while for
 
SDL allows the host audio backend to be used & configured.
 
I still need to finish my GTK-VNC patches to do the client end of
 
audio over VNC, then it'll all play correctly with desktop audio
 
services via gstreamer/pulseaudio."

[edit] RHEL and Fedora Virtualization Feature Parity

Robert Day wondered how the virtualization features[1] of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 compared to Fedora 12.

Daniel Berrange explained[2] "The KVM based virtualization in RHEL-5.4 is not nearly so far behind Fedora as you might think. The Package-x-generic-16.pnglibvirt mgmt stack in RHEL-5.4 was rebased to be near parity with Fedora 11, and KVM in RHEL-5.4 is also pretty close to that using what's best described as a hybrid of kvm-83 and kvm-84."
