did you install the whole rootfs from the buildroot first at some point?  If not, then you're probably hitting the uClibc incompatibility problem, where flite is linked against uClibc 0.28 and the rootfs on the gumstix has 0.27, which is not binary-compatible.  If you update the whole rootfs, then you'll have the right uclibc and things should work.

I was wondering if any other users had gotten the flite text-to-speech engine to run. I assume this is the case since it is a default package in the buildroot, but I haven't been able to get it to run. On the command line I get complaints about a "Segmentation fault".

Here are the steps I took. I would appreciate it if more experienced gumstix users could take a look and tell me how I'm being stupid.

For reference, I am doing this on a Ubuntu Linux desktop.

-- On Desktop (with gumstix connected through USBnet):

1. svn co gumstix-buildroot
2. cd gumstix-buildroot
3. make menuconfig
4. [select flite as compile option]
5. make
6. scp ~/gumstix-buildroot/build_arm_nofpu/root/usr/bin/flite root@

-- On gumstix (through SSH):

1. /usr/bin/flite

-- Thanks
