After upgrading to Opensuse 12.3, I no longer had audio to VirtualBox 4.2. I upgraded to VirtualBox 4.3, but that didn’t fix the problem. The VBox configuration has the Host Driver as PulseAudio and the Controller as Intel HD Audio. When I start the VM I get a warning SUSE Paste
The VBox log shows:
00:00:00.774052 Audio: Trying driver 'pulse'. 00:00:01.034691 Pulse: Audio input/output stopped! 00:00:01.034718 Pulse: Failed to connect to server: Connection refused 00:00:01.034811 Audio: Initialization of driver 'pulse' failed, trying 'oss'. 00:00:01.034853 OSS: Failed to open /dev/dsp for ADC (No such file or directory) 00:00:01.034870 HDAcodec: can't open in fmt(freq: 44100) 00:00:01.034879 OSS: Failed to open /dev/dsp for DAC (No such file or directory) 00:00:01.034884 OSS: Failed to open /dev/dsp for DAC (No such file or directory) 00:00:01.034890 HDA: WARNING: Unable to open PCM IN! 00:00:01.034892 HDA: WARNING: Unable to open PCM OUT! 00:00:01.034895 Audio: Using NULL audio driver 00:00:01.034903 VM: Raising runtime error 'HostAudioNotResponding' (fFlags=0x0) 00:00:01.034908 Console: VM runtime error: fatal=false, errorID=HostAudioNotResponding message="No audio devices could be opened.

I have audio on the host side but don’t know how to troubleshoot this problem. Any suggestions will be welcomed.
