    KVM Hosts with newer kernels and Sound on Windows Guests - Sound fixed


    Hi there
    If you are having trouble with Sound on Windows Guests when using KVM with recent kernels then install the gst-plugins-good as libvirt changed a bit.

    For Arch / Manjaro :
    sudo pacman -S extra/gst-plugins-good (or simply sudo pacman -S gst-plugins-good) and then reboot / power on the guest.

    For other distros use your package manager.

    Working fine now with kernel 5.10.16

    Cheers

    Jimbo

    :)

    Windows guests no sound using VMWare on Linux Hosts after alsa update

    Hi folks

    Can't get any sound on Windows Guests (XP/W7/W10) on Linux Hosts after latest alsa (sound) / kernel updates.

    Sound on Host working perfectly, Windows VM's running on KVM also sound working perfectly on them too.

    Kernel is 5.10.13-arch1 Vmware workstation release 16.1.0.

    rolling back alsa libraries - then it works but that's usually not a good idea - you should keep host properly updated whatever OS you are running.

    Cheers

    Linux Host HYPERVISOR to Windows 10 Guests passthru (KVM)

    Hi folks
    for those using Linux Hosts and want to try out a hypervisor (built in in typical Linux distros) where you can pass thru video / usb stuff to guests - Windows 10 runs fine -- just follow steps in this link

    Running Windows 10 on Linux using KVM with VGA Passthrough s Blog

    It certainly is a lot easier and more flexible than HYPER-V and it doesn't need Windows PRO to run - so any machine with a Linux distro -- go for it.

    Cheers

    KVM Hosts with newer kernels and Sound on Windows Guests - Sound fixed

    Example of Windows 10 Running on KVM (Hypervisor) on Linux Host

    Hi folks

    Here's a recent build of Windows 10 running on the Linux HYPERVISOR (equivalent to Windows HYPER-V) KVM -- it's built into the kernel so all the extra packagres are available to run this. The main problem is to create a network bridge (equivalent to HYPER-V external switch) which you need - otherwise your VM won't have access to anything else on the network other than VM's on the same network.

    However follow this and it's easy enough (similar on other distros such as ubuntu as well)

    Install and Configure KVM (Bridge Net Interface) on CentOS 7 / RHEL 7 – tuxfixer.com

    The only other thing left to do is to add the equivalent of VBOX additions etc to optimise video / sound / i/o.

    Install the virtio-win package from Fedora and also download the .iso. Attach the .iso to the windows guest and install within the windows guest-- "Seeemples ...."! You need to install both on host and guest - the iso has signed windows binaries.

    No probs with sound / networking or adding usb devices.

    I'm running this as a test -- the HOST OS is booted from an external SSD via USB, the VM is on another external SSD via usb so not the best way and I've still to add the additions - but the Guest is snappy enough so far.

    I'll probably create some more Windows VM's this way as I can probably run a lot more VM's with KVM than using VMWARE workstation

    Cheers
