Nice thing about the speech not working in wheezy for me is its making me
slow down and think through with the fortunate help of the entire manual
what might be happening.
This test desktop is an Intel 400 Pentium II with 384 or memory, and while
persona checked the hardware to insure it could work, cd rom, Ethernet
card sound card and the like I have used little if any of it together
before since it was built only for Linux and this took some time.
so, in theory, how long would it normally take for the system to reach the
boot menu of the installer? I may be pressing s too soon, not sure where
the beep would come from without a speaker, or if there even is a PC
Since the installer is checking on things, this might take a while.
Second, as I said above there is a network card in the machine, but I am
between providers and dsl modems just now. the network check seems later
in the install process, but will I be able to bypass this test or might
everything freeze trying to conduct it? The installer may seek the
network ard as hardware even before giving me the boot menu options
Last of all, I am using the wheezy software speech <or trying to lol> for
the install but as I have a dectalk express may want to change to this for
speech once i Manage to install debian. I do not want to try this
before, who know the software voice might be understandable.
still will I be able to configure this change later, once the system is
up and running?
I did confirm looking att he cd itself that the disc is fine, the write
image and the like. could have a look using my dos setup in this main
at least it is not the cd itself.
