Does anybody know if speakup needs a frame buffer? I'm trying to get 
speakup working on a machine w/o a video card. It sort of works. I was 
taking shots at what the problem was. I installed a package named xvfb 
hoping to create a virtual frame buffer. That didn't work but when I 
uninstalled it, I got speech until I rebooted.  Then no speech again. I 
am thinking removing the package, xvfb, recreated some frame buffer 
thing which lasted until I rebooted.
