VirtualBox OpenSolaris guest on OS X host; Audio does not work

VirtualBox OpenSolaris guest on OS X host; Audio does not work

I have OpenSolaris 2009.06 installed as a guest operating system on Virtualbox 3.0.4 under OS X 10.5.8. The VirtualBox guest additions have been installed. All available updates have been applied to both operating systems and VirtualBox.

"Boot the OpenSolaris guest, and add a new driver binding entry:

$ pfexec bash

# update_drv -a -i '""pci8086,2415""' audio810

Now the mixerctl command should be able to find sound hardware, and when you restart the gnome desktop the gnome volume control applet should see the audio hardware, too.
