Hi,

I've built IPKs of the latest versions of Kismet and Flite. They are available from my unstable feed.

QUOTE
kismet 2005.06.R1-1 - Wireless 802.11b monitoring tool
Kismet is a 802.11b wireless network sniffer.  It is capable of sniffing using almost any supported wireless card using the Airo, HostAP, Wlan-NG, and Orinoco (with a kernel patch) drivers.
Can make use of sox and festival to play audio alarms for network events and speak out network summary on discovery.  Optionally works with gpsdrive to map scanning.

I have built Kismet with its config dir set to /etc/kismet rather than /usr/etc as in the old package. The config files included in the package are just the defaults from the source so you'll need to edit them to set up your capture source and disable GPS and sound etc. See the README in kismet-doc for the list of available capture source types.
If you want to use sound you can tell Kismet to use /usr/bin/mplayer instead of /usr/bin/play but make sure you only do this in kismet_ui.conf or kismet.conf, not both (since one config file is for the client and the other is for the server). Kismet can now use flite for text-to-speech, see below.

flite 1.2 - A small run-time speech synthesis engine
Flite is a small fast run-time speech synthesis engine.  It is the latest addition to the suite of free software synthesis tools including University of Edinburgh's Festival Speech Synthesis System and Carnegie Mellon University's FestVox project, tools, scripts and documentation for building synthetic voices.  However, flite itself does not require either of these systems to run.

Flite has been built with static binaries to save a little space but please let me know if you'd like the shared library version instead (in case you want to run other software that makes use of the Flite libraries). Be warned that the flite package takes up about 11MB when installed! There are two binaries in the flite package - flite (the text-to-speech engine, e.g. flite "Hello World") and flite_time (which converts a specified time into an english sentence, e.g. flite_time `date +%H:%M`).

Please let me know if you have trouble with any of the packages.

Cheers,

Matt

Thanks for posting a link to your feed

Thank you for this release, but I have an error "zcat: .... not in gzip format .." with the Package Manager when I want to install your packages.

I use pdaXrom RC10.

can you check your ipk ?
Zumi
Rgrep, you are sure you stipped flite from development symbols and removed every not needed stuff from it?
Here's another 1.2 flite ipk: http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=9319&hl=flite
This package (which contains only the flite binary and works well for me) is only 4,1MB unpacked.

It appears to be fine but just to be sure I have rebuilt the IPKs and have uploaded them to my feed. Their MD5 checksums are:

Thanks Zumi I didn't realise someone else had already built flite. My flite binary is 5.3MB and flite_time is 5.5MB. That is their stripped size (I stripped them with strip -s). They were around 4MB the first time I built the package but then I recompiled them with the "lexfix" patch and it bumped the size up a bit.

There might be something I can do to bring the size down as it appears they have both the 8KHz and 16KHz diphone voices and apparently the Zaurus only needs 8KHz samples (the 16KHz samples were included for the iPaq). It wasn't obvious to me when compiling how to disable one or the other but I will see what I can do.

I could obtain a correct ipk by using the order wget

kismet functions very well.... biggrin.gif !!!

Still thank rgrep.
