I won't guarantee 100% that I'm not doing something wrong,but it appears
that the iso from Dave's site works with the official fedora core 2 set
but not with the speakup set. It also appears that the brltty.iso on the
speakup site, dated July 19, boots and brings up brltty but does not work
with either the present speakup install disks or the official fedora core
disks. I haven't tried to make a brltty.iso from the current
speakup-fedora boot.iso, because both when I tried making an iso in an Fc2
install and a gentoo install I got errors that prevented the completion of
the iso. I had previously reported the problem to dave; I don't think I've
tried making the iso in debian. My hypothesis was that possibly the
brltty.iso, which is actually a modification of the boot.iso via a script
(though you can also do it with the first cd of a set) needs to match the
set you are trying to use. However, it's possible I'm jumping to an
Since the brltty.iso does work with the official FC2 first cd, and since
the first speakup-modified FC2 cd comes up fine using speakup boot
parameters, and since both pass integrity tests, I don't believe there's
anything wrong with the first cd in either set that would have caused this
When I say that the brltty.iso from the speakup site does not
either cd set, I mean that brltty comes up but when you put in the first
cd of the set it is not recognized as a fecora cd.
It also may be that the problem with running the script to create isos has
been solved and i haven't tried it again with a late enough version.
The only other possibility I can think of is that there is something wrong
with the brltty.iso on the speakup site or with my copy of it.
I hope the way i'm explaining this is understandable.
