xen guest: no audio device


i created a centos 5.3 hvm domU.

i have tried any one of the following in the xen config without luck
soundhw = "all" or "sb16" or "es1370"

dom0:
dom0 has audio device working.
#lspci
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)

#virsh version
Compiled against library: libvir 0.7.0
Using library: libvir 0.7.0
Using API: Xen 3.0.1
Running hypervisor: Xen 3.1.0

# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18-128.4.1.el5xen

Valid sound card names (comma separated):

That device probably uses the snd-hda-intel kernel driver via ALSA. Beyond that I'm not sure what you're looking for?

$ lsmod | grep -i "^snd"

$ cat /proc/asound/cards

$ speaker-test -c 2 -D hw:0

You can use the sound card in your host and your guest os simultaneously?

Hi,

Am Having same issue with sound in WinXP installed using virt manager 0.7 , I dont have any other issues with it other than sound , everything works just fine.

WinXP shows sound card installed in device manager correctly.

If i play a song in media player , it freezes , flash player plays youtube content without sound , I tried the three sound devices available in virt manager (es1370 , sb16 , pcspk) , no luck , no idea how to proceed further , Kindly help,,
Additional info : sb16 and pcspk doesnt get installed or show up in device manager , es1370 is detected as creative sound card

Thanks
