In order to use slackware at all, I had to start by using the speakup.s 
driver and a doubletalk lt synthesizer.  I got espeak and portaudio and 
espeakup installed on this system.  What I don't yet know how to do is the 
command that will create /dev/softsynth for me and then set me up so I can 
adjust lilo.conf to use softsynth for output.  Has anyone else made that 
device on slackware by hand yet?
