Virtualbox audio, no audio found [Solved]

Post by notzippy » Thu Jun 21, 2012 16:21

Hi

I have almost gotten my machine rebuilt, but I am still having an issue with virtualbox. I have assigned my VMS to use alsa, but when I boot up a VM, virtualbox reports an error. I found the error and solution posted in the gentoo community - http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-91 ... art-0.html , which suggests that libsdl 1.2.15 ebuild be modified to remove the --disable-alsa-shared configure option, and re-emerged. To be honest I don't know where to start on this. Any help would be appreciated...

Thx
Nz

After a host machine reboot virtual box would not start a VM, the error indicated that the kernel was not compilied. Running on the command line the actual error was displayed

Code: Select all

WARNING: The VirtualBox kernel modules are not loaded. 
         Please load all the needed kernel modules by:

           for m in vbox{drv,netadp,netflt}; do modprobe $m; done

         You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.

Running "for m in vbox{drv,netadp,netflt}; do modprobe $m; done" as su allowed virtualbox to launch. Is there a better way for modprobe to be run ?

The wiki can do a better job of explaining it than I can: https://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?titl ... Virtualbox

Changed to pulse audio seems to fix that
