Re: [g-a-devel] Festival will not work with gnome-speech 0.3.6.

I have now found at least a temporary work-around.

It is possible to set the server_access_list variable to allow only 
certain hosts to connect to the Festival server. This variable can be 
set in /usr/share/festival/festival.scm, at least on Ubuntu and Debian.

localhost.localdomain, a successful connection to the server is 
possible. However, for security, the nil setting is certinly not an 

I don't yet know whether this is caused by something having been changed 
in another package, or a change in Festival between revision 13 and 16. 
I can certainly chace that up if people are interested however.

I thought I would share this all with you in case there is somebody else 
out there with the same problem.
