Do I have to use alsa sound drivers to use speakup with espeak?
I've installed alsa-utils and I've run alsaconf but there seems to be a
problem. I get error messages that it can't find device 0. I have this
really old laptop with a Sound Blaster 8 built in. I've loaded the correct
modues manually 'modprobe snd-sb8' but no matter what I do, I can't seem to
get sound at all via the alsa drivers.
The oss drivers work fine. But I can't get speech-dispatcher to work with
espeak. I saw that in the espeak config file, it calls aplay. And aplay
won't work possibly because I'm not using the alsa drivers. Am I on the
right track here?
