Hi.  I get the following error when trying to use speakout with kernel

Jan 15 20:36:40 ccs kernel: Ports not available, trying to steal them
Jan 15 20:36:40 ccs kernel: Unable to allocate port at 3f8, errno -16
Jan 15 20:36:40 ccs kernel: Speakout: not found

Now if I take out the (comment out) the return NULL statement
immediately following, it actually works.  Should we test for this error
or what?

Your life is like a penny.  You're going to lose it.  The question is:
How do
you spend it?
