Ticket #3799 (closed defect: fixed)
Audio output stops working on Linux guest
|Reported by:||ionosphere80||Owned by:|
I'm running VirtualBox 2.2.0 on a 64-bit Debian 5.0 (Lenny) host with 32-bit Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid) and Windows XP guests. I configured AC97 virtual sound devices on both guests using ALSA because PulseAudio can't find the correct output on my particular variant of Intel HDA hardware (Dell Optiplex 755). Sound initially functions great on both guests but audio output stops working on Ubuntu after a random amount of time (typically a couple of days) with no errors. Media applications still seem to recognize and use the sound device, but I can't hear anything. Restarting the Ubuntu guest temporarily fixes the problem. The Windows guest doesn't have this issue.
