desnotes, thanks for the update.
Sometimes it can become difficult to support and integrate with another project like Qemu. What I get from reading their site is that the -kernel option, like we use, seems to be more for testing. I now it would be much more simple from as DSL developer's standpoint is to only support the -cdrom image option. That gets these Qemu updates off my back. But doing so, we lose alot of nice integration and easy access to the many DSL boot options that are needed.
I see that one can use the option
Specifying all three now supported by Qemu.
Their site says it is selectable by Windows control panel?
Not being much of a Windows user, I am at a loss to test this.
If this solves the other users issues regarding sound then OK.
Otherwise I suppose I could drop the -soundhw option for the final 2.3 release and include in the readme a link to Qemu's site regarding sound.
Or change to the -cdrom option and then it becomes similar to the vmplayer version of DSL.
Testing & Feedback on these Qemu related issues requested.
