No sound for linux host when VM running

Reported by: TioBorracho Owned by:
Priority: major Component: audio
Version: VirtualBox 2.0.2 Keywords: audio alsa 5.1 linux
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux


After I start an XP VM on a linux host (Gentoo amd64, kernel 2.6.26-r1) all applications using alsa complains about /dev/dsp not available (VBox is using it but dowsn't let anyone else grab it).

Applications started *BEFORE* VM starts can still reproduce audio (so can VM).

I just opened xine and could play with audio an video with MPEG2 audio, but another with A/52 5.1 audio complains about /dev/dsp busy.

Try the PulseAudio backend. Mixing of audio channels with ALSA requires some additional setup, see the ALSA howto.
