QEMU is currently compiled with the default sound modules (oss). oss is antique as far as I know and does not allow a modern Arch installation to play sound. As suggested[1], I added the --audio-drv-list=LIST option:

./configure --python=python2 --audio-drv-list='pa alsa sdl'

That configuration allows me to play sound using:

qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 2G -cdrom some.iso -sdl -soundhw hda

Version: 1.5.0-2 (should apply to 1.4.1-3 as well)

This task depends upon
