Re: update on speech server issue



I notice that Emacs is loading various suse-specific startup files.
Normally this shouldn't create any problems, but you could try
temporarily removing those. There's probably a startup file in
/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp that loads everything else. If you can find
it, move it out of the way and try again.

My environment variables:

export DTK_PROGRAM=dtk-exp
export DTK_PORT=/dev/ttyS0
export DTK_TCL=tcl
export DTK_DEVICE="DECtalk Express"

Within emacs, run M-x shell and check the environment to be sure that
the settings are indeed correct when Emacs is running (just run the
set command without arguments from bash or any similar Bourne-like
shell).

Your other options:

1. Remove the distribution-supplied version of Emacs, download Emacs
   and compile it from source.

2. Install a different Linux distribution, or upgrade the existing
   one in case that helps.
