I'm sorry to discourage!  If memory serves me correct, half of my frustration was that festival had many requirements that I needed to build before I could start building festival.  Requirements that may be already included in VL or in the repos.  But I seem to remember the documentation wasn't too clear and I had to do much Googling to get the thing built.  But when running it is VERY cool.

I think I built it to compliment amsn.  Is that what you need it for?  Text to speech is cool.

i wanted to do some stuff in the terminal with it and try some bash scripts  :P

ahh,idk. If i'd build it,im not sure about the license.Would it be alright for the repo?
If not,i'd go and search for a slack11 tgz... :-\

Ubuntu had devided a sepparate repository dir for the non-gpl stuff.. I wonder if VL will do that ever in the future.

Says it has an X11 type license.  Whatever that means.  I'm thinking about building it.  But only if there is still interest.  Any takers?

Some time ago I tried to compile festival with no luck at all.  It would be great to have this app in the repos.

I remember having great times with this program asking for a pizza throigh it, or having a cron job, that told me the time every hour :)

Not a killer app, but if someone compiles it succesfully, it would be a nice addition for our repo.

I'd love to have it. That way I will be able to make my compiter answer instead of me the phone  :P

maybe program it to greet users in the guest account in a weird way and have a few laughs   ;D

Oh,ktorrent and a bunch of other apps can use it too.
Im not sure,but there was an AI engine,that used festival for the talking and receiving.. I was thinking of compiling it,but lost the link. Its GPL and it was on a japanese website..
