[sound] Alsa works, speaker doesn't

Hi I just managed to get the 2.6.0-test9 kernel going, with alsa drivers from kernel source (the external ones from won't compile)

I have sound, as in playing mp3's and stuff,I am happy with that but I am missing my pc-speaker beeps when I for exmple eject or insert a cardbus card, I notice also that the beeps from the terminal aren't there anymore as well, so it seems my pc speaker is "dead", it work when doing the post-beep so it is a linux thingy. To have speaker enabled where do i look or what should I have compiled in the kernel or .. help. I know that most of you don't like the beep I( want it back ;-)

Tx for your thoughts on it.

My config

Debian unstable
kernel 2.6.0-test9
no gnome or kde.

There is a setting in your alsamixer for the PC Speaker, did you set that?

The "problem" you have as nothing to do with alsa. Alsa does nothing with the pc speaker. If you want that, you should compile some other module. But I don't know which one
