Re: error with emacspeak 14.0 under rh7.1




With rpm based systems, if the rpm won't install because of missing
dependencies, it should report a list of dependencies which need to be
satisfied before you can install. 

While it is true the rpm version expects the ViaVoice rpms to be
installed before it will allow you to install emacspeak, you can avoid
this. If you don't want to use ViaVoice, you can install the emacspeak
rpm using the --nodeps switch i.e.

rpm --nodeps -i emacspeak-14.0-1.noarch.rpm

Also note, you can safely install the viavoice without the lesstif
libraries by using the --nodeps switch as well. The ViaVoice rpm only
needs the lesstif libraries if you want to run the gui based
demonstration. You don't need this as there is a command line
demonstration available which you can use to test viaVoice and
viaVoice will run fine without the lesstif libraries when you want to
use it with emacspeak. 

I think its always a good idea to try installing an rpm without the
nodeps switch first and if it fails look at the dependencies which
failed and then make a decision on how important those dependencies
are. I know this can be difficult if you don't know much about linux
or emacspeak. However, its better to do it this way rather than just
using the nodeps switch without first checking as there may be other
dependencies (like tclx etc) which you must have.
