I doubt that this problem was caused by the missing pulseaudio
drivers. Just yesterday the SVN contained a bug which made VMs
using software-virtualization crash. So you probably hit this
If the PulseAudio libraries cannot be found, the GUI will show
you a nice error message and it will continue with no audio
input/output, just tested that.
