Linux - Mandrake and RipTide Sound Board

Hi there,

I am wondering if anyone has been able to configure linux/Mandrake with the Rip
Tide Sound Board, found in the HP 8660c Pavilion Computer.

So far I have been unable to find any info about doing this with Linux.

Google is your friend...
I found this... it looks like OSS supports the card (in beta form only).

All the other places I looked cursed about the card...

Hope that helps...

Re: Linux - Mandrake and RipTide Sound Board


If you are attempting to install the RipTide Sound Card for Linux, then I have disappointing news for you (, this card is not supported by Linux - directly.

There is a third party software packge from OSS which will support the card via software drivers - It is BETA for the RipTide controller card. OSS is available at (

When I installed Linux on my Pavilion, I purchased one of the supportted Sound Cards.

Hope that Helps!

Have a Great Day!
