Let M be a compact Riemannian manifold. We prove existence of a global
weak solution of the stochastic wave equation Dt@tu = Dx@xu + (Xu + ¸0(u)@tu +
¸1(u)@xu) ¿W where X is a continuous tangent vector field on M, ¸0, ¸1 are continuous vector bundles homomorphisms from TM to TM and W is a spatially homogeneous Wiener process on R with finite spectral measure. A new general method of constructing weak solutions of SPDEs that does not rely on martingale representation theorem is used.
