Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 484577
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:57:34 EST
Description of problem:
When I try to use festival from speech-dispatcher, the festival server reports an error:
SIOD ERROR: could not open file speech-dispatcher.scm
Shouldn't festival-freebsoft-utils be included in the repository?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.make festival the default module in /etc/speech-dispatcher/speechd.conf
4.spd-say "Hello world"
reports the error above
should speak the phrase
I had to download festival-freebsoft-utils from http://www.freebsoft.org/festival-freebsoft-utils and add start the server manually to get speech-dispatcher to work with festival.
In #orca, they say that in the future, the idea is to migrate away from gnome-speech in GNOME (especially with the deprecation of bonobo) to Speech Dispatcher, so it would be nice if Speech Dispatcher was packaged with everything necessary to work well.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Could someone update the version to 12?
I'll note that GNOME seems to at present be intending on migrating to Speech Dispatcher from ORCA as part of their KillBonobo murder spree. Ensuring Speech Dispatcher can be set up to use the wider range of quality voices provided by festival seems important, especially in light of GNOME's plans.
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Reproduced this bug in Fedora 13 after working around part of bug 569531.
It should not have been EOLed with Fedora 10 without checking to see that
it was fixed in subsequent versions.
