Re: [orca-list] SD crash problem maybe is solved

Hello Herman, congratulations to your achievement.  Now I'm only curious
why is SD restarted when updatedb starts.  Does anyone have any idea?

BTW, you can test the presence of the directory in the sptartup script.
 You can find my startup script, which I created a few maonts ago for
invoking the SD compiled from source in Ubuntu 7.04.  As far as I
remember, the needed changes were creating the directory and some PID
file settings (which may not be needed for running the Debain version of

Best regards, Tomas

Hermann napsal(a):
perhaps I succeeded in solving the SD crash:
Everyday the process Updatedb is invoked by Anacron; this makes my 
harddrive start spinning. In the same moment SD crashes, because it gets 
restarted, don't ask me why.
I figured this out, because there was a mail by Anacron to the root 
mailbox saying that /var/run/speech-dispatcher couldn't be created, 
because it exists.
Remember: Due to the fact that I've installed SD 0.6.4 from the Debian 
pool, the startup script couldn't create that folder so that I've to put in 
two lines crating the dirctory and chown it to speech-dispatcher:audio. 
This workaround pointed me to the right dirction.
So I deactivated "Update user folders" under System/preferences/session.
Since this process starts only once a day, I've to wait until tomorrow, 
but I hope I've solved the problem.
