Absolutely no reason to build kernels. The trick is to be sure and get
the staging kernel modules to match the Fedora kernel package, because
Speakup is included there.
So, you do not want to update your Fedora kernel unless the kmod-staging
rpm is available for that same kernel version.
The easiest way is:
yum update kmod-staging
as it will pull in the required kernel if it exists, and ignore it if it
The latest, as of this writing, is:
