I am trying to use my Dectalk external (old) with my Vinux speakup system.
modprobe speakup_decext ser=0
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'speakup_decext': No such device
At this point speakup stops talking, the /speakup/synth file contains "none"
and the speakup var system does not contain a decext subdirectory,
and changing the synth file to contain decext does not work.
So, at that point, I reboot to resurrect speakup using espeak.
At the moment, my Dectalk is connected to the /dev/ttyS0 port, and it speaks
any text I write to the port. But this is no substitute for it working
Executing modinfo speakup_decext
description: Speakup support for DECtalk External synthesizers
author: David Borowski
author: Kirk Reiser <kirk at braille.uwo.ca>
vermagic: 4.4.0-36-generic SMP mod_unload modversions 686
parm: ser:Set the serial port for the synthesizer (0-based). (int)
parm: start:Start the synthesizer once it is loaded. (short)
Also, executing modprobe speakup_decext ser=0 returns the same no such device error message.
Executing modprobe -n -v speakup_decext returns:
modprobe speakup_decext ser=0 start=1
gives me the same results, silence and I need to reboot.
Any suggestions how to get the decext module to load?
