Using ubuntu 11.04 64 bit, I am getting the following error and other 
related ones when trying to install speakup using the "apt-get install 
speakup" method.
CC [M]  /var/lib/dkms/speakup/3.1.5.dfsg.1/build/buffers.o
/var/lib/dkms/speakup/3.1.5.dfsg.1/build/buffers.c: In function 
/var/lib/dkms/speakup/3.1.5.dfsg.1/build/buffers.c:33:46: error: 
struct vc_data' has no member named 

Will it help to get the latest version from git?
This is a fresh install on a new machine.
uname -a gives:
Linux willempc 2.6.38-11-generic #50-Ubuntu SMP Mon Sep 12 21:17:25 UTC 
2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

TIA, Willem
