emacspeak 6.0 installation



Hello emacspeak users,
I am having trouble installing emacspeak 6.0. I have been using
emacspeak for a couple of months on a sparc 2 running solaris 2.5. I
inherited the sparc 2, so I am not sure if the emacs and lisp
directories are in standard places and I am not sure if this might be
causing my problems. 
Here are the steps I took:
1. I extracted the emacspeak files in the directory /opt/FSFemacs
2.  I replaced  /dev/ttya with /dev/ttyb in the dtk-exp file  because it
is more convenient to connect the dectalk to the ttyb port.
3. I ran make config in the /opt/FSFemacs/emacspeak-6.0 directory.
I get some feedback about missing some functions and cl-hash, but
nothing terrible.
4. I typed tcl dectalk_speak {this is a test} and I got spoken feedback
from the dectalk.
5.  I invoque emacspeak with the following command
emacs -nw -q -l emacspeak-setup.el
I hear files  being loaded and then a beep after emacspeak-replace, then
I look at the bottom of the window and  find the following mesage
process speaker <1>  not running


I think I had a very similar problem when I updated to emacspeak 5.0. I
think I solved it by using the dtk-exp file that I had been using with
emacspeak 4.0. That file had been modified with help from Raman to work
with my solaris 2.5 system. Unfortunately, I destroyed that file. 


Thanks, John Morgan
