Volker Kuhlmann has done an outstanding job of outlining and putting
together fixes, in a step by step format for problems that he
encountered while trying to install Mandrake's version of ViaVoice into
SuSE, not just the TTS portion, but the entire thing. His site maya be
helpful to you. I have both the IBM ViaVoice (which installs to just
about any distro) and the Mandrake version, and did not run into any
problems installing the Mandrake version into SuSE 7.2.
