       one, but which *.ko I load or compile is the question.  If
       memory serves, I think this has  a Matrox card.  I've tried
       adding a few sound [snd_*.ko] files, but no sound.  The OSS
       dialogs open, but the tests produce no sound..  Would the sound
       card show up in dmesg if there were a sound card hiding?

       Any help out there?  This old box is an HP Kayak "XU/XW".

I solved most of my sound problems by taking actions reading

	Hm.  I forgot about adding the "hints.*"; but catenating
	/dev/sndstat indicates that I use snd_sb16.ko and compiling that
	in gives me a bunch of fatal undefines.  So I added "snd_sbc"
to the KERNCONF and am recompiling.
	Shouldn't be this hard; this worked with REdhat, just
	straightaway.  ....

What model's the card (or what does pciconf -lv report at least)?
