Back with one more (probably last for the moment) problem, with sound this time.
When I connect to a Windows 7 (ich6 audio device) with virt-manager or spicec
from Gnome, sound works like a charm.
However, for the intended use, my standard boot sequence is booting Fedora in
the multi-user.target (runlevel 3), and run spicec with xinit.
In this situation, I logically get a connection refused to pulseaudio since it
isn't running. If I start pulseaudio with start-pulseaudio-x11 as the user
running spicec, I don't get any errors, but no sound either.
I know this has more to do with pulseaudio than virtualization, however, since
I know sound has been a long time issue with Spice on previous versions, maybe
someone can help me on this ?
No ideas from me, though you can eliminate qemu/spice from the equation by
seeing if 'pacat /dev/urandom' actually generates any sound when run from the
host. If not, it's strictly an environment/pulseaudio issue. Turn down your
volume first since the noise is pretty offensive if it works :)
