Re: Emacspeak 9.0

Could you be more specific about the problems you had with the
emacspeak rpm? (I'm responsible for it and would be happy to fix any
problems with it.)

the 9.0 source tarball has a bug which ignores the DTK_* environment
variable settings.

of course not.

however, you will want to install X to keep some emacs packages happy
as their authors write for an X-aware emacs (which is not the same as
an emacs running under X).
