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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot into FC4.
Actual results:
Note that the PC speaker doesn't work (no beep at login, etc.).

Expected results:
PC speaker should work.

Additional info:
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.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2006-08-07 18:19:57 UTC
