First a little background. I'm trying to get sound to work in my VMs. I'm using CentOS 5.5 with kvm. After a great deal of hair pulling I've sort of half figured out that VNC the default viewer doesn't pass sound from the VM to the host. So, I'm trying to set up Spice, which does pass audio from guest to host. I thought it would be as easy as using Add Remove Software and selecting qspice, but apparently that only installs the spice server, not the client.
I found some instructions on the net which explains how to install the spice client on CentOS. Nice! The only problem is the author assumes a much higher level of technical competency than I currently possess. Link here: http://www.geekgoth.de/tag/centos/
Quote: "I downloaded the packages sources an installed them in my buildroot."
Me: "Uh, you did what now?"
I think he's talking about compiling from source, a process I've heard about but never attempted. Are we talking compiling a new kernel here or what?
So can someone please help a confused newbie understand these instructions so I can get a working spice client on my box? Alt solution - if anyone can explain how to get sound out of VNC?
