softwarespeech startin

Hello,

if i start the grml 1.1 on my eeepc with the option swspeak (i have  
modified alsa-base "options snd-hda-intel model=3stack-dig"), the  
softwarespeech does not work. If i log in as rott and start the speechd-up  
manually, the softwarespeech will work.

In which start script will be speech-dispatcher and speechd-up be started?

Regards.

Dietmar

News from Debian eeePC

Dietmar,

Thought you might be interested in this from the
Debian Project News today.

Bits from the Debian Eee PC team

Ben Armstrong [26]reported on the current activities of the [27]Debian
Eee PC team: Debian's next release Lenny will work with all of the
earliest models of the Eee PC and the Eee PC team hopes to soon realize
its goal of a completely DFSG free system for the earliest models of
the Eee Pc. Newer models are now able to install using the atl1e
ethernet driver from eeepc.debian.net; support for wireless and other
aspects of the new hardware will follow soon. The wireless custom
Debian-installer is also making good progress. There are currently two
Debian-live USB images available: a demo of the [28]LXDE desktop (a
lightweight desktop environment that is made with the Eee PC in mind)
and a minimal console-only image for rescue/backup. The team is also
always looking for new members to contribute to Debian's support for
the Eee Pc.

Re: softwarespeech startin

Hi Dietmar

The speech dispatcher is started from
/etc/runlevel.conf. Make sure that this line is
written correctly.

20   0,1,6    2,3,4,5   /etc/init.d/speech-dispatcher

Best Wishes
Maurice

grml on Asus eee-pc 700 -- Alsa problem

Hello listmembers, 

I bought an eee-pc 700 and installed grml, since although I'm by no means a system admnistrator it provides
me with exactly the software   
I need in everyday life! The installation  went fine and I set up a nice lightweight system using wmii as a
windowmanage -- grml sems to be the ideal solution for a rather slow mini computer!

One problem remains:  I can't get the sound started. While there seems to be no problem configuring Alsa with
alsaconfig, alsamixer gives me: 

  alsamixer: function snd_mixer_load failed: Invalid argument

and amixer says:

  amixer: Mixer default load error: Invalid argument

Now, I've googled the problem and read that this can happen due to incompatible versions of the kernel and
alsa. But that's impossible in this case, since on other computers, grml works out of the box . 

The sound card is: 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family)

Does anyone in the list have a clue? And is there anybody else using rml on an eee-pc?

Thanks in advance, 

David

I´m running debian/lenny with XFCE on it.

As in several ISO files in the main ISO from which a bootloader lets you
choose? If yes, could you mail the relevant bits and pieces to this list?
I have wanted such a thing for some time now, but never got around to
actually doing it..

Yes, that's possible. I have a 2GB USB pen that provides the
possibility to choose between 'grml' (default, being grml 1.1) and
'grml64' (being grml64 0.2).

Currently neither grml-live nor grml2usb provide that feature OOTB
(though it's on the wishlist for both tools).  But it's pretty easy
to get that feature with just a few manual steps involved.  Please
give me a few hours/days and I'll write down the according steps for
you; as soon as it's available I'll write a mail to the mailinglist.

regards,
