The audio tutorial on that page is way out of date and only gets anyone to an unbootable system if instructions are followed. At the least it needs removal and at best it needs an update. I used the latest talkingarch to do an arch install and still have an unbootable system. For one thing, the pacstrap line is defective. It needs at minimum to be: pacstrap /mnt base base-devel espeakup alsa-utils pulseaudio-alsa dhcpcd linux linux-firmware grub vi
Even with that line I haven't got a bootable system since I don't get the grub beep when trying to boot the system. Beyond that, where is alsa.state supposed to be located and where does alsa.state get copied for anything to work? I had to attach a second speaker set to a usb port to get the system to generate an asound.conf file but even copying that into /mnt/etc didn't help. Another question related to this is if you don't have two or more sound cards what are the proper commands to get alsa working at all on a new system install with espeakup? That was never coveered in the basic install tutorial either. I've been trying to install this distro for the last couple days so I could add a second machine to help out with the foldingathome project and so far no cigar. The braille notes I have came from that tutorial and I need to know what to update so those can be rewritten so they'll be correct. For some reason Jenux won't even come up talking on the second machine though talkingarch does.
