Fedora Virtualization List

Virtualization Test Day

The latest Fedora Test Day focused on Virtualization improvements in Fedora 12[1]. Even though the test day was on Sept. 17th, you can still help make F12 the best release possible and learn about the newest features in the process. Visit the test day page, download the live image, and post your experiences on the wiki.

Guest Sound Over VNC

Dave Allan noticed[1] "when a KVM guest created with virt-manager is running on F10, sound on the physical host stops working. When all VMs are shutdown, sound starts working again. Removing the <sound> tag from the VM XML allows sound to work while the VM is booted." and suggested disabling sound in guests by default.

Daniel Berrange explained[2] "It is complicated :-) In Fedora >= 11 we currently disable all use of sound cards, but this upsets people who want sound ;-P I'm working on a new version of the patch which sets up audio-over-VNC[3], 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."
