Unfortunately, I can’t find a simple, coherent set of instructions to just enable sys-audio.
I’ve found instructions that go on forever for constructing a minimal template for an existing sys-audio VM. That implies there IS a pre-configured sys-audio, I just have to enable it somehow–like I did with sys-usb. I’d like to try that first, and then, if it works (which, judging from the number of posts I see about sys-audio issues, is not by any means assured), go about the task of making a minimal template.
OK we might be talking at cross purposes. The first link in your reply points to setting up usb-audio, not sys-audio. In other words…it’s again assuming the existence of sys-audio (except in a couple of steps that it says don’t do if you don’t have sys-audio).
As it happens I’m pulling audio off an HDMI connector, and I have no microphone…so USB has nothing to do with my audio.
Other than that, it looks like, provided I can get a list of needed packages for sys-audio, I might get somewhere with this.
Which will be a good thing because I’m getting tired of having to reboot my machine to reset the audio! (Fortunately, I’ve learned (thanks to another thread) how to speed that process up by not starting most sys-* qubes before login!)
Exactly. It’s just a link to provide with hopefully all the packages needed for any kind of audiovm to work.
I had first sys-audio based on fedora-34-xfce, then deleted it and used the above procedure to create totally new one. So I’m suggesting you what exactly I’ve been through, step by step.
Well, there will be some additional steps, but they’re not related to if audio will work or not, so I left them for afterward.
