|Summary||0007328: Linux ALSA sound snd_add_pcm_handler: Function not implemented|
Whenever I try to play a sound in Fedora 10, the VM logs a notice:
soundStart: snd_add_pcm_handler: Function not implemented
and no sound is heard. This has been reported a couple of times but did not make it to this tracker yet, apparently:
A workaround is to force using OSS instead of ALSA using the -vm-sound-OSS option.

Additional info from email@example.com on vm-dev list:
It is a known problem.

form, nor with other
ALSA plugins for handlings certain things slightly out of the ordinary.
The snd_async_add_pcm_handler() is not considered part of the "Safe" alsa
Lennart recently wrote a good guide about this:
>From the section:
"You want to know more about the safe ALSA subset?"
"Do not use "async handlers", e.g. via snd_async_add_pcm_handler() and
Asynchronous handlers are implemented using POSIX signals, which is a very
questionable use of them, especially from libraries and plugins. Even when
don't want to limit yourself to the safe ALSA subset it is highly
not to use this functionality."
Disable PulseAudio or to write a plugin "vm-sound-PA" for works with
(use this example:
