Exclamation 2008.11 vs. ATI SB450 HDA Audio driver


I have got some problem with my sound car. I hope somebody can help me to fix it. I want to use this card:

device-id: 437b

After installation the device Drive Utility sad audiohd driver installed but sound didn't come out from my laptop. Ater this i these steps:
- Uninstall the SUNWaudiohd driver: "pfexec pkg uninstall SUNWaudiohd"
- Download the OSS sound driver for OpenSolaris.
- Install the OSS sound driver: "pfexec pkgadd -d oss-solaris-v4.1-1051-i386.pkg" (Or whatever revision you happened to download).
- Log out of your desktop and log back in. Sound should work now.

The Device Drive Utils sad oss_audiohd driver installed correct, but no sound

Here is some oss outpu:

I don't have got 5.1 sound card so i dont't understand this point.

# prtconf -D | grep pci1043

# mixerctl
Device /dev/audioctl:
Name = SUNW,oss
Version = a
Config = onboard1

Audio mixer for /dev/audioctl is enabled

# ossdetect
rem_drv osscore
rem_drv oss_hdaudio
rem_drv oss_usb
rem_drv oss_sadasupport
unloaded osscommon
add_drv -m '* 0666 root sys' osscore
add_drv -m '* 0666 root sys' -i '"pci1002,437b"' oss_hdaudio
add_drv -m '* 0666 root sys' -i '"usbif,class1"' oss_usb
add_drv -m '* 0666 root sys' oss_sadasupport

This show every thing is all right, and when i start ossxmix and play some music, the mixers volume control "leds" are showing the output but no sound.

Thank you for helping in my trouble.
