Is there a PulseAudio server running at your distribution?

Does playing multiple audio streams in parallel work for sound
applications with an ALSA backend?

Kind regards,



No there is no Pulse audio server running.
Since I was totally unfamiliar with pulse audio,
it was the last (bottom-most) option to select from
the list of audio devices inthe VM vonfig menu.
So I thought I would select it,  since none of the other options
were working (i.e. I was getting stuck at 0%).

Playing multiple streams in parallel does work currently
with the audio drivers I currently have in the host OS. To wit:
# lsmod | grep -i alsa
# lsmod | grep -i oss
