<P><FONT SIZE=2>Hi John,</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;Cecil,</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;Please do report back on your findings. Also, if you have some time and</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;patience and have no fear of breaking things, I may get you to test out</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;a speech-dispatcher 5.0 ebuild. It has some problems right now so it's</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;not in portage, and I've had power outages due to the storms/hurricanes,</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;but send me an email if you're brave! That goes to anyone on list who</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;wants to their systems with these packages :).</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>I'm not shy and I never learned to suffer in silence.... or succeed in silence either for that matter, So i'm sure that you'll hear.&nbsp; I look forward to having speechd-up working.&nbsp; Speech-dispatcher 5, that doesn't work with speakup correct?&nbsp; That's targeted more toward emacs isn't it?&nbsp; Of course, speech dispatcher may be required for speechd-up?&nbsp; In any case, I won't mind breaking (okay, trying) things, but if there isn't a direct impact to speakup it won't be a priority.&nbsp; </FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>On the other hand, i'm contemplating going back to my original partitioning scheme so emerging and testing before I wax shouldn't be a problem.&nbsp; I'm still learning things i should have done (or shouldn't have done) which I expected going into this.&nbsp; Eventually i'll have to stop transporting the Dectalk back and forth, it's just too rough on the hardware.&nbsp; </FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Has anyone out there had any experience building/using a vanilla kernel under gentoo?&nbsp; Will I have to d/l and apply speakup manually?&nbsp; I'm contemplating moving up to the latest 2.6 kernel to see if hardware issues go away (see comment above about things that shouldn't be done).&nbsp; At this point i'm looking the biggest hammer I can find.&nbsp; In case ya'll haven't realized it yet, i'm playing with toys right now, not seriously dependant on gentoo running stable, although I would like to get to that point.&nbsp; I'll be moving in a month or so and I want a linux (any linux) system up and running then to use as a proxy on the new network.&nbsp; Additionally, once I get comfortable with the build process i'll be teaching my son (we home school) and I need to be proficient enough to help him out if he gets stuck.&nbsp; Of course, that system will be a lot older, and hopefully easier to deal with.&nbsp; </FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Okay, enough rambling.&nbsp; </FONT>

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