Ticket #8734 (closed defect: worksforme)
OSX Guest Lacks Supported Sound Hardware (with workaround)
|Reported by:||mackyle||Owned by:|

|Host type:||Mac OS X|
With the VM audio set to:
Host Driver: CoreAudio Controller: Intel HD Audio
The OS X Server virtual machine guest (10.6.7) comes up without any recognized sound hardware.
However, after installing VoodooHDA from http://code.google.com/p/voodoohda/ and restarting the Guest, lo-and-behold there is full input/output sound support in the OS X Server guest.
At the very least, this workaround to get sound input/output working for OS X Server guests should be mentioned in the manual until VirtualBox guest emulation can emulate an Intel HD Audio device in just the right way to make an OS X Server guest recognize it directly.
