Serial ports with 32-bit vs. 64-bit processors

Did your doubletalk work during wheezy installation as well?
I tried using my doubletalk lt with Wheezy 64 bit to install, and got no
I also tried the latest grml live 64 bit cd, and got no speech after doing a
I wonder what determines when speakup will work with hardware speech? if it
works on your 64bit system it can't be a 64bit thing.
I tried this on a laptop if that makes any differences?
Maybe a device in my laptop interferes with the speakup serial code - i.e. a
device is using the i/o address that speakup normally associates with a

Are you saying you can't get your doubletalk to work at all or only if
you load the speakup_sot module before loading the speakup_ltlk module?
I don't know if I've ever tried that. But I have a 64 bit machine
running squeeze and another running wheezy. Speakup works with my
doubletalk on either machine if I load the speakup_ltlk module
directly. On the squeeze, I'm running a kernel from squeeze-backports
and on the wheezy machine, I'm running the stock kernel. Here is what
uname -r says on each;
My doubletalk also works with the 64-bit grml live CD. As I said, I'm
not entirely sure I ever tried loading the speakup_ltlk module after
speakup_soft. I would have to say that I have though because I put
speakup_soft in /etc/modules so it loads during boot.
