View Full Version : "Initiating start up sequence" voice

I know this might sound pretty lame to the people out there who are trying to stop their kernels from panicking and who cant get on the net, but I was wondering if anyone knew how to get the nice voice going again. it works from the disc but stops after a HDD install.

since I first heard David login to his Apple laptop and be greeted by computerised voice in Independence Day, I thought it would be really cool to have something similar on my own lappie. You can imagine my surprise when checking out all the other cool features of Knoppix, I find it has this aswell.

Any luck with this anyone?

I feel your pain Ford Prefect.

I, too, lost my audio when I installed Knoppix to HDD. It was the simple matter of two commands and a logout/login. I neglected to write it down, however, and after three Knoppix upgrades, I have forgotten. I know it is not 42.

BUT, all hope is not lost... here... put this fish in your ear...

I searched these fora for "enable audio" (or similar) and eventually found the same subject for which you search:

Don't panic!

I think you have to edit /etc/init.d/xsession, maybe can help this thread:

Simply brows the knoppix cd for mp3s, ogg, or wave files thats how i found them for my SuSe and windows box, last year no longer use it and can,t remember what file format it was in.
