Overall, everything fubar, exactly as expected: now it finally boots from GRUB and does not hangs as before, trying to use AMD on Core Duo; network is OK and won't suck anymore, as it did in "Nevada" build; video barely works in a simple mode and VBox Additions won't help you out of the box.
To fix video working full-screen and seamless mode, it is needed to be manually fixed, by simply removing away all of those display resolution modes from
/etc/X11/xorg.conffile and also setting up virtual machine with 64Mb of video memory.
Second step is audio that won't work anyway anywhere, unless you manually debug it again (as described above). First, throw away slim_install package, a waste of space dependency that keeps root of all evil: SUNWaudiohd package. After those two gone, get OSS driver for Slowlaris and install it (
pkgadd -d package-file.pkg):
Open Sound System installation completeDamn great! Unix follows now the most popular trends, exactly like in good-old WinNT times: install a driver, reboot the system...
You can use osstest command to test audio playback in your system.
It may be necessary to reboot the system before all devices get properly detected by the system.
Installation of OSS was successful.
P.S. Sound still sucks on Solaris big time and also randomly crashes (
/usr/sbin/soundoncures current random crash). Well, never mind, I don't need sound during packaging software and, besides, I use iTunes on my Mac anyway... :-)
