Re: Rockwell reptide - no sound in linux - works greate in Win98

look for the sound h/w in dmesg output.

then install the modules corresponding to the sound card. In my box, not a pav, I find from dmesg the soundcard is an sb compatable es1371 (or something like that)
Then I use
modprobe es1371
to install all the modules required.
Audio then works fine.

Later,
Bill
It works for me (tm)
