I didn't see any replies, so here are my thoughts. First, probably the
dmesg output isn't going to be that helpful unless one can sit in front of
your system and look at the various modules, so no point in sending it and
I'm not going to look at it.
You didn't say whether you're using hardware or software speech and I'm
not sure offhand what kernel Vinux uses. If you're using hardware speech,
probably the Arch kernel is too new and has the broken Speakup serial
ports, meaning that your serial synthesizer will never be found by the
kernel. The only things you can do are either downgrade to an older
kernel or switch to software speech. If you're running software speech on
both Vinux and Arch, Arch probably isn't finding your sound card or it
isn't using ALSA. I don't use Arch and I can't give more specifics, but I
would try loading the module for your sound card by hand, killing espeakup
if it's running, remove and reload the speakup_soft module and rerun
espeakup. If that helps, look in /etc to see how ALSA modules are
configured. Someone else here probably knows more about Arch than I do.
