Re: Where can I get festival lite?




Hi, thank all of you for all your information on getting flite and
where I can find it. Here's the trouble, there are errors in the
process of making the system to work on my machine. These are make
error 1 and 2. Nevertheless, I didn't lose anything. It seems that
viavoice is the only thing that will work on this machine and that's
fine. It sounds good enough for me and works well enough. When I learn
how to reverse-engineer a program, I might, and I stress might, be
able to fix the crashing problem. I am nowhere near working on it
right now and I don't know if I'll even mess with it or if I'll find
out how speech synthesis works and write up a whole new system. I
might even just leave it alone, I don't know yet, stay tuned. 

Now, here's another one for some of you to chew on for a while. I need
this information before I do my upgrade to RH 7.2 so I can get some of
this mess off this small hda drive so I can put more scientific tools
and stuff on here. 

Here's the problem. I have had 3 or 4 accidents in which I have broken
my speech system. Fortunately, some friends from my Linux Users' group
helped me fix it. The one situation in which I am interested involved
the craziest of things. I am not running any kind of X-windowing
system or for that matter, any kind of  windowing system on
here. Nevertheless, one day when I removed a whole group of Xfree86
packages and related font kind of mess, emacs broke. My speech system
was actually fine. The entire solution to the problem appeared to be
the re-installation of those Xfree86 packages. I don't need that kind
of wasting of disk space. the question is: How do I configure emacs
and emacspeak such that emacs-nox is started by default and so that I
can pull those Xfree86 packages off here? If anyone knows, please tell
me. 



Thanks for all your help.
