Hi everyone. I've just joined this list and wonder if anyone can help
to resolve the following query:
I have been running a 64-bit installation of Gentoo for some time now,
but am considering changing to a 32-bit installation so as to have
access to applications such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, Realplayer and
possibly Wine. I have downloaded and burned the Gentoo Live CD -
release 2008.0-r1 for the X86 architecture. The CD appears to boot
correctly, but try as I might, I cannot get Speakup to work with my
Dectalk USB. To install my 64-bit version of Gentoo, I used the Gentoo
Live CD release 2007.0 for the X86_64 architecture. At the bootloader
command prompt, I typed the following:
gentoo speakup_synth=dectlk speakup_ser=0
and Speakup worked fine from then on. Try as I might, I have been
unable to achieve this using the Gentoo Live CD release 2008.0-r1 and
would be very grateful for any advice. I realise that Speakup can be
made to work with software synthesizers such as Festival and it may be
that this is the way forward. I am, however, totally in the dark as to
how to do this, so any advice would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks for any help.
