pcspkr module still not loaded at boot time
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:54:31 EDT
Description of problem:
The pcspkr module is still not loaded at boot time. I had to create an
executable file /etc/rc.modules with "/sbin/modprobe pcspkr" in it to make this
happen, as in FC3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into FC4.
Note that the PC speaker doesn't work (no beep at login, etc.).
PC speaker should work.
Clean install of FC4.

The long-term fix for this is to get it loaded based on some intrinsic kernel
property, that can be probed and plugged through the normal hotplug mechanisms.
The short-term fix is a workaround in /etc/rc.modules.
Note that this seems to be loaded and installed now in Rawhide, specifically
2.6.17-1.2328.fc6. So damn annoying.
I'm pleased to read this is being fixed soon. Thank you for fixing this.
This is fixed in the current FC6 devel tree.
