I am writing this through Haiku under Virtualbox under WinXP host (though Ubuntu 8.10 amd64 also works well).
However, under both hosts, I can’t get the sound to work properly. I am using Intel sound chip emulation under Virtualbox and using directsound output and alsa output for windows and linux hosts respectively. Whenever I try to play any MP3 file through any software (Mediaplayer, CL-Amp, VLC), the sound is choppy, jittery and practically intolerable.
Is anyone of you facing the same problem? I believe this is Virtualbox problem but still wanted to confirm. Any solution for the same?
Further, I copied my windows fonts to /etc/fonts/ttfonts directory and rebooted haiku. However, now Firefox wouldn’t display any text so I had to delete them. Is this the problem with Haiku or Firefox?
BTW, rest everything works well. I made another 2 gb vdi image and installed haiku from prebuilt VMware image to this image and managed to boot Haiku from it properly. It is snappier, though Firefox is little slow sometimes.
