Festival package may be broken
« on: August 26, 2011, 02:12:08 am »


I'm interested in text to speech and so I took a look at festival. However, the package doesn't seem to work properly. I installed the package festival-2.1-i586-1vl70 on my VL7.0 STD beta 2 virtual machine.

When I try to run one of the (many) executables, I get the following error:
Code: [Select]

/usr/bin/festival: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I haven't tried all executables, just 'festival' and 'saytime', both produce this error.

The 'missing' library is installed in /usr/lib, and is also part of the festival package.

Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.
