I know that this topic has been addressed before, but I was not able to figure out how to comment on the existing posts. I am new to Mac and Ubuntu (Linux), so I apologize in advance for any newbie comments, questions, and mistakes.

I have Ubuntu 11.10 as the host OS and VMware 8 as the virtual software. My image is running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 everything seems to work fine except for the sound. The install was performed off a legal purchased copy of Snow Leopard from Apple. Original version was 10.6.3 and after install updated to 10.6.8.

I verified under VM settings that the sound card is connected. I've tried using auto detect and setting to ALSA: default sound card, but neither worked. I have installed all the drivers that I could find on the internet for this issue (AppleAC97Audio.kext with Kext Helper b7 and EsoniqAudioPCI_v1.0.2). Still no sound and "no output/input devices found" under system preferences.

I am not sure how to proceed from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If additional information is needed, I will try my best to provide.

I'm assuming that u mean the system info from the Mac image. I tried to attach the .spx file, but I got a error message stating that I'm not permitted to upload this kind of file. Is there another way I can get you this information?

Ok. I figured out that I had to zip the file to post on this site. I attached my system info for the mac image.

Update: Althougth it seems as though no one has been able to help with this problem yet. I was able to get a list of devices in system preferences input/output. Now my problem is that whenever I tried to play anything with sound my sound card disconnects from vm settings with error: error in creating sound stream. sound is disconnecting. If I try to reconnect while the sound is still playing, i get the error: failed to connect virtual device. When I stop the playback, it will connect successfully and stayed connected until I try to play sound again.

Has anyone been able to fix this problem? I'm getting exactly the same symptoms running Lion 10.7.3 in vmware ws 8 on a Ubuntu 11.10; I can see a list of devices in System Perferences -> Sound but the first time I try to play a sound the VM sound card disconnects with the vm message "Error in creating sound stream". I turned on "Gather debugging info" in the advanced options on VM Workstation. When the sound disconnects the following is logged:

2012-05-05T09:00:12.188+10:00| vcpu-0| I120: SoundAlsaSetHardwareParams: Failed to set Alsa hardware parameter (snd_pcm_hw_params): Invalid argument
2012-05-05T09:00:12.188+10:00| vcpu-0| I120: Msg_Post: Warning

I got sound working by commenting out the line sound.virtualDev = "hdaudio" from my .vmx file. It's pretty choppy at the moment, but there are several posts about tuning parameters pciSound.DAC2InterruptsPerSec and pciSound.playBuffer. Will try tweaking these now.
