Also like any Solaris based systems (Solaris 11.3 or OpenIndiana) when
installing on real hardware audio defaults to wrong device (audiohd#0), to switch default to
audiohd#1 (to have sound in Firefox) 
remove existing links:

# rm /dev/audio # rm /dev/audioctl # rm /dev/dsp create new # ln -s /dev/sound/1 /dev/audio # ln -s /dev/sound/1ctl /dev/audioctl # ln -s /dev/dsp1 /dev/dsp to see settings before/after change use $ ls -l /dev/audio $ ls -l /dev/audioctl $ ls -l /dev/dsp to see available options $ cat /dev/sndstat $ ls /dev/sound

NOTE: If using a USB-based  sound card use this method:

cat /dev/sndstat
ls -l /dev/sound

# rm /dev/audio
# rm /dev/audioctl
# rm /dev/dsp

# ln -s /dev/sound/3 /dev/audio
# ln -s /dev/sound/3ctl /dev/audioctl
# ln -s /dev/dsp3 /dev/dsp

    I use openindiana 151a at home on a Pentium IV 2,5 Ghz / 1256 Mb of RAM. All is working fine excepted audio (I have no problems before with opensolaris 111b, 134 or 134b).

    When I play audio (mp3 radios with realplayer or flashplayer, ogg with rythmbox or local .wav files with rythmbox) all works fine first. After about 10 minutes the sound become more and more distorted.

    Can I use 134 driver (/mnt is 134b) ?

    1. ls -l /kernel/drv/audio810 /mnt/kernel/drv/audio810
