Alas, though, my old studio laptop is gone (it's been my daughter's for years

I have a great new i7 laptop, but I've got it set up for Work Stuff and I'm not
changing that. Nor do I want to reboot it to do music stuff; I'd only do that for only
an hour here and there rarely, and wouldn't want to lose my environment (read: emacs
session, mosh sessions, and Firefox/Chrome tabs) and bring it all back.
What I'd really like is to run something like AVLinux inside KVM, with just enough
resources to run Ardour and some plugins and maybe low-resource synths. I can book AVLinux
just fine, but the problem I've had is that I cannot for the life of me get audio
working. I get errors from KVM.
Has anyone successfully gotten audio to work from inside of a KVM VM? Is there any
special magick I need to do to get this happening?
I was able to get audio working in Kvm using spice instead of vnc.
Basically you should set up "spice" in display-vnc reachable from the
guest details in VMM.
I've never experimented using it in real time i've just loaded some old
projects i did with reaper years ago and it did work (ignoring the
latency while recording of course).
Hope it helps
Also, I understand that if I'm not running a RT kernel on the host machine, I
won't get RT performance on the VM's, but I don't think I need that for
mixing. Are there any reasons why running say an Ingo kernel inside a KVM box wouldn't
