I'm told that even without a sound card, you can make your computer
say more than an occasional beep, by programming the PC speaker.
Kernel patches and supporting utilities to do that are in the pcsp
package, available at <>.

You can compile this as a module which will be called snd-pcsp.
WARNING: if you already have a soundcard, enabling this
driver may lead to a problem. Namely, it may get loaded
before the other sound driver of yours, making the
pc-speaker a default sound device. Which is likely not
what you want. To make this driver play nicely with other
sound driver, you can add this into your /etc/modprobe.conf:
options snd-pcsp index=2
You don't need this driver if you only want your pc-speaker to beep.
You don't need this driver if you have a tablet piezo beeper
in your PC instead of the real speaker.
It should not hurt to say Y or M here in all other cases.
Say N if you have a sound card.
Say M if you don't.
Say Y only if you really know what you do.
