But still no sound for "beep". Like I said, the pc speaker works
in general (e.g. echo -e '\a') but not for the beep application.
Not an answer, but you are not alone. At some point "beep" stopped
working for me too. I never really bothered to look into it. I'm
now running kernel 2.6.12.

Good to know I'm not alone.
There is already an open bug at:

Interestingly, running beep -e /dev/tty0 works.

Also the bug states it happened to 1.2.2.-17. Is that what you have?
I have 1.2.2.-15. I am going to look for 1.2.2.-17 and backport that and see what happens.
