festival on lenny

Hi all,

I installed a copy of debian/lenny onto my desktop system. I did not include the graphical desktop because I want to use it for strictly console-based types of work.

I want to get festival working on it, but even though I have installed alsa-oss alsa-utils alsa-tools and festival, when I try to use festival I get an error saying that festival cannot open /dev/dsp.

Sure enough there is no /dev/dsp.

My understanding from my days working on fedora is that alsa-oss creates/manages /dev/dsp.

Does anyone have this working or have any ideas?
