I can't get the patch command to work

Hi David:  Your linux source tree needs to be /usr/src/linux.  If your
patch is in the /usr/src directory, you cd to that directory:

cd /usr/src
patch -p0 <speakup-0.09-v2.2-patch

That should work.  If it doesn't then I suspect there is something
wrong with your linux source tree.  If you are using the Redhat kernel
source the other architectures other than the i386 are not there so
you will get failed hunks on those architectures.  If you want more
satisfying results get the full kernel source from
