I've installed OSS on my Solaris 10 x86 machine and it works find when I run
the 'osstest' command.
But all the other applications don't work and the error messege is this:
Couldn't open mixer device /dev/audioctl
Anyone could help me with this?

I think that my soundcard is installed and functioning correctly but every application
on JDS seems to look for this /dev/audioctl. I looked at mixer(7I) and saw that these
/dev/audio and /dev/audioctl are part of the audio(7I) interface.
The problem now is how to make the apps recognize the /dev/dsp instead of /dev/audio.

The sound system is working normally now.
I really appreciate your help. Thank you.
But there's one little thing: when I play an mp3 the Java Media Player simply stops
playing. I don't know if there is something to do with a bad mp3 file (until now I've tested
5 files and they all stop playing at random).
Do you have any suggestions?
Well, I'm really happy just to see this working! The little problem with JMP does not
bother me too much because I use XMMS.

stops when running in JMP.
Well I tried somethings, read a lot more things, but still didn't find any reason of why
When I do find the reason why, I'll post it here. This way everyone will know.
But, man.. thank you for your help.
