I tried SoaS-beta in VirtualBox on a Mac (it still does not boot in
VMWare Fusion). Had to add a sound adapter when making the VM, it was
not added by default.
There was no sound in Speak, nor in Etoys.
BUT: In the Terminal activity, "aplay /usr/share/sound/alsa/
Front_Center.wav" did play fine, so sound *is* working. The same
command did *not* work on a Linux VT console, neither as root nor as
The Etoys log file had the known "soundStart: snd_add_pcm_handler:
Function not implemented" message. So I added the -vm-sound-OSS
workaround to /usr/bin/etoys and then sound in Etoys played fine.
No idea about Speak though, there was no error in its log file.
