I imagine it would if you have all the liberaries and the kernal will support them. It could end up being dependency hati though since it was designed to run on the 2.4.x kernal. You might check the IBM site to see if they have continued development since they have their own Linux development team.

hiya thanks for reply.

yes ibm now has the viavoice program. i am, in the long run run trying to find assistive wares to help blind self. im not sure if it was yourself or thenotch that said why not spend the time learning a good o/s and not spend it fiddling with all the win housekeeping and other facets of winwoes.

im not sure how linux will help me with assistive/adaptive issues at this point but im sure ill be happier pursuing the grail with it than doing battle daily to just stay using win. im optimistic anyway

ubuntu- i just ordered from shipit and intend to try the flavors recommended by you guys in the know. sooner or later ill find my place.
and flavor i really dig and also has accessibility. im hopeful anyway :whistling:


oh i also ordered centOS and might soon just get an affordable linux pc. my hardware is old anyway.for under 200 bucks loaded with my flavor choice.plenty good for meh

PC has a 2.53 GHz Intel EM64T Celeron D Processor with a 533MHz FSB, 256MB DDR 400 RAM, 13.6GB 7200RPM Hard Disk and an embedded Intel Extreme Graphics engine, 64M shared memory, one AGPro slot, 3 PCI slots, 1 CNR slot, 2 available SATA slots (internal), and 2 UltraDMA IDE slots.

blessed is the dedicated tux box methinks :blink:
