OSX ML 10.8.3/4 in VMware 8/9 with a Linux host = no audio, anyone able to help?

15 August 2013 - 05:25 AM

Well I got bored recently and figured I'd check back into how the world of OSx86 has been progressing over the years and decided to give Mountain Lion a shot inside VMware 8/9 (I have both installed for development purposes). I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.2 x64 as the host OS and my issue is that regardless of of which version of VMware I happen to use I'm finding that I get no audio whatsoever.

Now, the thing is that the audio hardware is detected and shows up just fine under System Information (analog/digital/etc) so there's something there being detected as audio hardware, but for whatever reason there's just no actual output going to the host audio adapter. I've tried several methods and several variations of the Ensoniq driver but I've still had no luck whatsoever of actual audible audio output.

Figured I'd ask and see if anyone else has had a similar experience (OSX in VMware as a guest OS on a Linux host OS and no audio inside the virtual machine even though the "hardware" is detected and appears to be functional).

I'll check back a few times over the next few days just in case anyone has any suggestions or potential solutions.

Thanks for any assistance.
