Bug#244715: "Use system bell" doesn't use system bell (and kills everything else)
Got desperate and moved to 2.6.5 and ALSA, all sources from sid. Built the
pcspkr module into the kernel, rather than leaving it separate (when would
I /not/ want it loaded?), and built all the sound modules.
KDE continues to take control of the system beep. It now works at the
console, even when KDE is running and I switch ttys, but goes back to
nothing once I switch back to KDE.
2.4 or 2.6, OSS or ALSA... the only thing consistently breaking here is KDE
after the 3.2 transition.
I will keep trying.
