Re: Compilation of espeak server for emacspeak35 on Debian Squeeze

I'm not sure you understood what I'm saying.

If you login on a couple consoles, say F1 and F2, Then on F1 you do
something like mplayer somefile.wav, then do Alt-F2, the mplayer
process stops playing. When you go back to Alt-F1 it resumes, just where
it had been interrupted.

So, same permissions.

Yes, I suppose the root access problem might be managed with
permissions, but it should also work over ssh, and doesn't.
