    Subject2.5.32 doesn't beep?
    Linus Torvalds 2.5.32 announcement:

    I've noticed that in 2.5.32 with CONFIG_KEYBOARD_ATKBD=y, the kernel no
    longer beeps via the PC speaker. Both (at the console) hitting DEL or BS
    at the start of input or doing a simple echo ^G are now silent.

    Call me old-fashioned, but I want those beeps back :-)
