Re: slackware current emacspeak install nearly working



The sound card I have plays radio streams and is a silicon integrated 
systems model.  I looked in /etc/rc.d/modules and could find no reference 
to silicon in that file so it may be slackware makes this sound card work 
using another manufacturer's driver. On Sat, 20 Jul 2013, Jason White
