Does ANYBODY know how I can get the infamous Riptide PCI Audio soundcard/modem to work with Mandrake Linux 8.0 on my HP Pavilion 4533??

Unfortunatly, the Riptide modem/sound combo card is what one calls a "winmodem". But there is some good news the opensound driver now has support for the Conexant Riptide card. see... http://www.opensound.com

Your best bet is probably to make plans to replace the hardware. My perference for modems are the external kind. I have had very good luck with my 3com courier. The sportster is a lot more economical. if you considering an internal modem be sure to check it's compatability at http://www.linmodems.org . For a sound card, a soundblaster live is nice mut older 16bit soundblasters are adequite and available used for cheap.

I tried the opensound, but I couldn't get it to work.  There were repeated errors and the site said (I read *afterwards*) that they do not work with the Mandrake kernel, blah blah, I would need to download and install a new one, blah blah, pain and suffering...  Yeah.

So are there any other choices?  I'm willing to go out and get a Sound Blaster, as my Riptide card barely works with Windows.

Sad to say, your best bet is to replace the hardware.

sorry

That's what I might end up doing - go down to the computer store and buy a $30 Sound Blaster. ;) Thanks for your help, though.
