Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 799137
portaudio dependency & therefore jack dependency
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:29:59 EDT
Description of problem:
This is https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=782791 in a Fedora context.
espeak's portaudio dependency (and therefore, jack dependency) cause both portaudio and jack to be pulled into the live images.
What do we lose if we go pulse-only for espeak?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
20120229 live image
I don't believe we lose anything. Not sure if it's a module that could be moved into a sub package so for the minimal possibly that people use it they could install a sub package

It cannot be moved into subpackage. I am not against drop, but to be sure I wrote to devel mailing list.
Indeed, a subpackage is not possible in the current state of the code. The backend is hardcoded inside the executable. The optional runtime backend switchability I wrote and got upstreamed works by adding a third set of backend functions which wrap the real functions with code like if (PulseAudio running) pulse_foo(); else port_foo();, but both backends need to be compiled into the executable. A plugin system would be more work.
