I thought the 2.6* kernel was still in test phase & was not yet stable?? The latest kernel for slack is 2.4.22. If you go outside of that - untill its been fully tested - then there are bound to be unfortunate problems.

Why do you need a console bell anyways??

In theory IT IS stable, or it wouldn't be 2.6.*: it would be 2.6.test*... this is valid for vanilla kernel. Linux Distros will wait for further tests before including it in their distibutions, but it is a lot of drivers setting and security enhancing...

And I don't understand the bell stuff... is it the sound when you mistype something in the console? Are you sure that it is the ONLY sound you can't hear anymore? In new kernel there is native support to ALSA drivers and OSS is deprecated, maybe you misconfigured something in the sound zone...

ye im not using a slackware packaged 2.6, using 2.6.1 from source kernel.org style. my lq.org status might be "noob" but i have been rolling linux and slack 3.4, walnut creek style. So i should be able to figure out the bell problem, just felt like being dramatic, plus i just like the assuarnce of a "beep" when i do something wrong like press backspace one too many times.

btw 2.6.1 is mmmm mmmm goooood! dont need to have 100 3rd party modules loaded now since almost all my hardware is supported by kernel

ps. if anyone knows about the console beep thing....

thanx

I repeat, is that the only sound you cannot hear anymore? I think it could be the config only if no other sound works. Otherwise i'm not enough skilled to imagine which is the strange problem. Did you touch some other configuration file when you installed? If you are in KDE, did you try controlling the console configuration? (If some of this question is trivial for you, think that i'm just trying to say everything could help you...)

im not sure but when i saw configureing a 2.4.20 kernel i do belive i remember seeing a option to suport that little bell, so id say go back and this time take all the time in the world to click on the help option for every option in the kernel, that way you will get what you want with less pains (even tho it takes a good 2-3 the first time cuse there no savd config from the first time )
