Installing Espeak on Fedora 8


Has anyone successfully installed Espeak on Fedora 8?

I had it running on Fedora 6, but now if I try to compile it, or to run the pre-compiled version, I get "cannot find -lportaudio". I've got Portaudio from the Fedora repository and made a symbolic link as requested by Espeak's author (who forgot to mention that in the README...). I don't even know if -lportaudio is a file I haven't got, or a function that the latest Portaudio no longer has!

By design packages named %{name} are matched by packages named %{name}-devel which you want if you want to compile things. Before you build from source see if running 'yum install portaudio-devel' fixes this error message.
