New OSS Drivers (Partly) Fix Sound Issues in OpenSolaris on VirtualBox on Mac OS X

Thanks to a comment made by Maria on my blog, I tried installing the new version of OSS drivers, and am happy to say that the sound now works in OpenSolaris in VirtualBox on Mac OS X!  Thanks, Maria!


Here's what I did:


# pkgrm oss    (to delete the old version I installed previously)
# reboot

Download the new oss driver file, oss-solaris-v4.0-1016-i386.pkg, from www.4front-tech.com/download.cgi
(select Solaris 10/11 x86/AMD64 in the list).


# pkgadd -d oss-solaris-v4.0-1016-i386.pkg
# reboot

Run osstest after the OS comes back up, and listen to the music!  Sounds great.

UPDATE 8/13/08: I think I spoke too soon. The sound is very flaky, sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. I am not sure what is happening.
