I just burned the most current iso for my architecture, called
install-amd64-minimal-20101007.iso. When booting, once I heard the beep,
gentoo speakup.synth=soft <ENTER>
but got no speech.
Once in the root prompt, I entered alsamixer, and with a sighted
assistance I verified that most channels were muted. I issued m and
right arrow til I unmuted them all, but still no speech.
I issued "espeak -vpt test" and ESpeak has talked aloud as expected, but
the speakup commands didn't work.
Do you have suggestions of commands I could type to try getting speech?
I already tried "modprobe speakup_soft" with no results.
