Re: PC Speaker cannot be disabled

Thanks Alejandro.  This was another solution that worked for me too.  But it can also been done through alsamixer -c1 and muting the PC speaker.  ALSA loads another module (perhaps this one) if the original pcspkr module is blacklisted.

in 2.6.26 there is an additional pc speaker module called snd-pcsp
unloading and blacklisting that, should do the work (at least it did for me).
