My pc can beeps when boot with knoppix, but can't beep when
boot with FC4, what's wrong? My bell-style set as 'audible'.

modprobe pcspkr

might help here.

To make this permanent, add the following line to your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file:

/sbin/modprobe pcspkr

Shoulb be the /etc/sysconfig/modules/*.modules?

In my case, I used the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file and the bell works fine on my computer.

/etc/sysconfig/modules/* is preferred for loading modules, and /etc/rc.local is preferred for starting local services.


For some modules (such as this one), it doesn't really matter which way you go. The difference is, scripts /etc/sysconfig/modules/* are run early in the init process (so modules are available for services in /etc/init.d that need them) and /etc/rc.local is run at the very end (so things that rely on services can know they are already running).
