How to configure audio in VirtualBox guest?
I'm having some trouble getting alsa to work in Slackware64-14.1 in a VirtualBox VM. I'm running Slackware without X (though I do have the X series installed).
First, I made sure rc.alsa was executable. Then, after logging in as root, I ran alsamixer to unmute the channels. I tested the sound by running cat /dev/sda > /dev/dsp, but there was no sound.
I searched for some guides to set up sound in Slackware, but I'm not sure which guide to use. Are there official instructions I could use?
Here is the output of lsmod | grep snd (sorry the indentation didn't work correctly):
Got it working! I read this part of the ArchWiki and set the channel volumes so dB gain = 0. Then, I ran the command speaker-test. It worked! For some reason the command cat /dev/sda > /dev/dsp doesn't work (which is what I used to use to test the sound), but that's probably not a big deal.
