Once you have the live cd booted and are able to ssh into the box, you can just follow the installation handbook. There is a speakup ebuild for gentoo, which I am about to update shortly, so once you are in the croot with the kernel compiled and installed, you can just emerge speakup and espeakup, configure espeakup to start in the default run level, configure the speakup_soft module to load when you boot the system, then you should be ready to go. Let me know if you need more explanation about how to set these up. - -- William Hubbs gentoo accessibility team lead williamh@g.o -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.9 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAkmgexIACgkQblQW9DDEZTh8swCdHZzLHGtAXPCVD6oOQc22JsLn Mi4AoK+KoKFs3wbk1WhqvntvfQJOSXGp =3uti -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
