beep does not work

Hi,

I have alsa installed and this

speaker-test -t sine -f 1000 -l 2 2>&1

works (it sounds)
but beep command does not produce any output.

Any hints?

Thanks,
Xan.

Re: beep does not work

speaker-test tests your standalone (or in-built, if you have a laptop) speakers, whereas beep uses the PC speaker, they're different bits of hardware.

It's possible that your motherboard doesn't have a speaker, or you may have blacklisted the pcspkr module, which is needed to use the PC speaker.

In alsamixer "Speaker" appers.

Re: beep does not work

Do you get any BIOS beep when the machine powers on? If so see whether beep works in the operating system when run from the root account. If that produces a sound then there could be a permissions problem on the device (see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1599916 ). If that doesn't produce any sound I'm afraid you'll have to examine physically the mobo carefully to see whether it has a speaker.

No, the bios does not produce any beep. A related question: how can I reproduce a sound (wav, etc.) Is there any program like beep with produce sound and then I can reproduce it?

Thanks,
