<TITLE>Software speech</TITLE>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>Well, I had success over the weekend.&nbsp; I ended up loading kernel 2.4.26-gentoo-r9 and using genkernel to create the initrd file.&nbsp; I still need to manually intervene while booting (insmod usb-storage, echo &quot;scsi add-single-device 0 0 0&quot; &gt; /proc/scsi/scsi, exit, /dev/sda1), but at least it will the mount /dev/sda1 as root and continue the boot process to completion!&nbsp; </FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>What do I need to do to configure sound?&nbsp; I assume that i'll need to put all the sound modules into modules.autoload.d and run modules-update?&nbsp; Do I need to emerge a mixer and the like?&nbsp; If so, what all packages will I need?&nbsp; I assume that my config is oss, since alsa wasn't a config option for the 2.4.26 kernel.&nbsp; Will flite work with oss?&nbsp; </FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>In summary, my question is basically where do I go from here?&nbsp; After sound is functional, I expect to</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>emerge flite</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>emerge speechd-up</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>Will things work properly if I then</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>rc-update add flite default</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>rc-update add speechd-up default</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>or is it more complex/complicated than that?&nbsp; All pointers welcome!</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>I've found the linuxrc file and I hope to mod it so that the machine will come up with no manual intervention.&nbsp; This is particularly important since I don't expect software speech to come up until late in the boot process, is this correct?&nbsp; In particular, is software speech available only after root is mounted?</FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Regards,</FONT>
