Description victor romanchuk 2011-04-14 20:47:29 UTC
after an upgrade of media-libs/libsdl to version 1.2.14-r6 virtualbox-bin-4.0.4 guest does not recognize emulated sound device: when booting guest os (win xp in my case) the vbox displays warning: HostAudioNotResponding

sound at host side works fine. things like pulseaudio, esd etc are not used

Reproducible: Always

SDL lib downgrade to previous stable version (1.2.13-r1) solves the issue

I guess the problem is in virtualbox as other apps requiring libSDL function properly (at least sound works as expected)

app-emulation/virtualbox-bin-4.0.4 was built with the following:
USE="additions chm (multilib) python -headless -rdesktop-vrdp -sdk -vboxwebsrv"
Comment 1 Dmitry Bigunyak 2011-04-15 10:37:06 UTC
Has exactly the same problem.
Comment 2 Lionel Cordesses 2011-04-16 19:51:22 UTC
Same problem with stable virtualbox-bin-3.2.12-r1 and libsdl-1.2.14-r6 on amd64.
Comment 3 Renato Alves 2011-04-22 17:51:08 UTC
Same problem here. Not using any sound system besides raw alsa. Sound on host works, and virtualbox complains about audio not responding.

In media-libs/libsdl-1.2.14-r6 removing the line that contains --disable-alsa-shared solves the problem.

Can this be added as a flag or other more suitable behavior?

Which file did you edit?
I have the same problem with virtualbox-3.2.12
Comment 5 Filipe Dios 2011-05-03 14:21:32 UTC
Note to confirm that manually editing the libsdl ebuild fixed the issue for virtualbox. For the other poster, the file that needs to be edited is /usr/portage/media-libs/libsdl/libsdl-1.2.14-r6.ebuild
Comment 6 Joseph 2011-05-03 17:46:27 UTC
Commenting out the "--disable-alsa-shared"
ebuild /usr/portage/media-libs/libsdl/libsdl-1.2.14-r6.ebuild manifest
emerge libsdl

fixed the problem.

media-libs/libsdl-1.2.14-r6 ebuild without --disable-alsa-shared

This is a trivial change, but perhaps it is not being committed since no one has actually posted to the bug an updated ebuild with the one-line change.  So here it is.

Patch file form for the one-line change

In case a patch file style submission is preferable, here is that too.
Comment 9 Stefan Kiesler 2011-07-21 14:27:53 UTC
It's quite annoying that such simple changes don't seem to make it into the main tree anymore.
Wasn't Gentoo "all about choice" a long time ago?

Also, isn't ALSA default on Gentoo? How can two packages declared stable  (libsdl/virtualbox-bin) break each other in their default configuration?
Comment 10 Denilson Sá Maia 2011-08-12 07:35:06 UTC
This bug seems like a duplicate of bug 310793
Comment 11 Christoph Junghans (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-01-05 23:28:04 UTC
There is an ebuild without "--disable-alsa-shared" in moonrise and cj-overlay.
