I would just like to mention that my 2.6.24-speakup kernel packages are
still available and run great on Etch. My kernel has the speakup and
speakup-dectlk modules built-in, the other synths are loadable modules.
I can't help you with software speech, but I can say that the
2.6.24-speakup kernel worked on two systems that I've tested it on, one
Lenny and one Etch, and I think other people might have used it. It
installs and works like a traditional kernel package. If you need to
compile modules or otherwise need headers or source, also install the
2.6.24-etchnhalf kernel packages available from the regular Debian
archive. For my custom kernel, go to:
http://baechler.net/debian/ if the above doesn't work
If anyone actually uses these kernel packages, please mail or post
feedback. I doubt that I will make future kernel packages available
since 2.6.26 largely eliminates the need for patching and custom kernels
in the first place, but I would like to know that my efforts weren't
wasted. They certainly saved my bacon on the Etch system I was working
on last week which I posted about here.
