I haven't been on gentoo in a while, but I remember this on my last
try. From what I remember, speakup's modules aren't installed
properly. Kinda makes me mad, I've wanted to use gentoo for a long
time (portage ftw!) but I don't have another machine to do an ssh
install from, and I wouldn't need that if the speech would work...
I'll have to play with the latest livecd though and see if I can get
it to do something, but that's what I remember from my last try with
it (early this year I think).
Thanks, Derek Roberts, KJ4UFX.
