Fwd: Re: request for emacspeak installation instructions on mandrake 7.2




>Roger,


If your experience with installing emacspeak onto a Mandrake installation 
is universal, then I for one am in the deep unplesant stuff.

I've had considerable trouble getting emacspeak installed with via voice 
and still do not have it working.  I've had to resort to locating somebody 
with experience at this stuff.  Funny thing is, that Mandrake installed 
very easily -- very smooth, no hitches.  Getting bootstrapped with 
emacspeak has been just the opposite.  I'm getting a certain degree of the 
depth of my aversion to Windows, by the fact that I'm still pursuing linux 
as the desired alternative.

So, are there others who actually have emacspeak 14.0 with via voice 
running under Mandrake 8.0??? If not, I've wasted $80!!

Dave
