Description of problem:
After a clean install of FC2, the system beep does not sound (i.e.
type ctrl-G in the terminal window). modprobing pcspkr (as pointed
out to me in the fedora-list) fixes this problem, and the system
beep plays fine. All other sound is unaffected.
pcspkr should be part of the standard modules that are loaded for all
systems, since a lot of applications rely of the system beep.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. fresh install
2. try typing ctrl-g in the terminal window
3. note that no beep is generated
I have the same problem with an upgrade install (from FC1, in turn
