I am running speakupmodified FC8 x64 on my notbook. I am running
speakupmodified on my desktop FC8 i386. I am mainly using ttsynth for my
notebook. I had just put it on the desktop to try to get the spkconnect to
work. Both systems have been yum updated. I have attached the output from
the make that I did for spk_connect. I realize that speakup is for terminal
mode. I believe that I have followed the instructions properly. This
output is from my x64 notebook.

You don't run Speakup in terminal mode, but rather from a text console
which has its own login.
You should compile the ttsynth connector for use with Speakup. Source
file and instructions are on the ttsynth.com page.
Whether you modprobe for speakup_sftsyn, or do 'echo sftsyn
>/proc/speakup/synth_name' depends on what kernel you're using and how
>it was compiled. You don't say, so I can't tell further.
