I didn't have to pass anything, but I don't use software speech. If in
doubt, pass swspeak. The worst you would get is an error in your logs.
Also, how accessible is grml2hd? When I tried it, the cursor either
didn't follow my selection or Speakup couldn't follow the cursor. I
needed sighted help because I almost formatted and installed the wrong
hard disk partition. I hope that got fixed. Mika posted here that he
was unaware of the problem and it sounded like it would be fixed, but
since it's already installed, I had no reason to try it again. Also be
aware that just by the nature of a live CD installation, you'll probably
end up with lots of extra packages that you don't need or want. If
you're on a desktop for example, it still installs a bunch of packages
for laptops, wireless, Apache, etc. Hopefully some of those can be
turned off easily in grml2hd, but I couldn't when I tried. I was not
running the final 1.1, I was running 1.1RC1. Hopefully some of these
problems have been fixed. I would like to know how it goes for you.
