Howdy,

ah so its not a issue at boot time?

fenrir reads the current screen on startup. your current screen might be TTY1 (ctrl + alt + f1). on this screen there still might be the boot messages.

so it might be the content of TTY1 after boot process, but you dont want to have the content of TTY1 spoken?
sounds like the boot buffer is not flushed, there is an GUI running on TTY1 is this correct? i see this here as well if there is no getty on TTY1 (my x server).

you can verify if this is still written on the screen by
sudo cat /dev/vcs1

then you might the get the boot messages when they are still shown on the screen.

Hi Chrys,
<snip another idea that comes into my mind would be starting fenrir later in 
boot process.
PL] Yes, but these messages are spoken whenever I launch Fenrir.

I launch it from a ssh terminal for testing.

Pranav
