Re: Linux 9 stretch What to do about reviving speakup?

Hi Samuel: Sorry, yes it seems to be working except that an isolated
install doesn't really cover the situation where a general upgrade or
full-upgrade is taking place and how that will affect your changes. We
may need to wait until the new package will be installed along with
many others to find out how affective it is.

Hello Kirk,

Could you please check that version 1:0.80-14 fixes the issue?
It does work in my tests, by as history has shown, my tests are usually
not enough, and real tests by an actual users is needed to make really
sure the issue is gone.

Debian is getting frozen, if people want the fix in, they need to check
that it does work.

Thanks for it!  I'll fix that for Buster. Unfortunately the next upgrade
will again have the issue, since it's the prerm script which stops
espeakup. But the upgrade after that (or a reinstall) should be fine.

Could you try to install version 1:0.80-14 from

deb http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd buildd-unstable main contrib non-free

The upgrade should still have the issue, but if you re-install with
--reinstall you shouldn't have the issue any more.
