While preparing for your Solaris installation, did you investigate the Hardware Compatibility List ?
That would guide you whether any of your components would even work.
I just took a quick glance. Your audio chipset is not there.
If yours is a desktop PeeCee, go get a cheap add-on card (such as the ubiquitous Creative Soundblaster).
If that's a laptop PeeCee, you're out of luck. Pick a different computer or do without sound.
ok , I understand. But if I had an other supported sound card, what should I write in the terminal ( step by step is very appreciated) to compile and install that driver on my computer , how can I compile the other programs that I'll download.?? Thanks for the disposability :) ..
If the audio chipset is natively recognized by Solaris, it just works.
That's why I selected a used Creative card with a ESS1371 chipset on it.
It cost me all of $US2.00
(a reconfiguration reboot might be necessary if you're adding it after the OS is installed)
If you need to use third party drivers,
there will be instructions included in whatever zipfile
you would be downloading from that third-party provider.
That provider decides how you do whatever needs to be done.
Go back to that HCL that I linked earlier. Spend some time reading it.
Follow some of the links to third-party downloads.
Get them and investigate what's inside the zipfiles.
