I am writing to inform you all, that as of Ubuntu Hardy 8.04, to be released in April next year, the
Ttsynth/Ibmtts speech synthesizer will no longer work, due to a library that it depends on, having been
the Ubuntu archives. This library was a left over piece from the gcc 2.95 and glibc 2.2 toolchain, that was
ubuntu for compatibility reasons. It is actually a wonder that it has stayed around this long.
I appreciate the fact that there are many of you out there that use this synth daily, however this decision
of my hands, and it is a matter for the vendors to sort out. I would encourage users of this synth to contact
vendor from which you purchased your license, to ask them for a proper resolution to this issue. The library
ttsynth/ibmtts currently depends on is libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2, which is the library that was removed from
Thanks in advance for your understanding.
