    Solved PC speaker won't beep properly.

    I installed FreeBSD 13.2 on a physical machine today. As always, I placed the speaker on the motherboard and it beeped as expected when I turned on the machine. But when I tried to get anything out it of using beep, it just gave me low-pitch clicking sounds. That did not use to happen with...

    Buzzer on GPIO Pins

    I am back on this topic. How to get a buzzer on GPIO Pins. I know we have GPIO-LED for assigning pins as System LED. What about /dev/speaker. How can I make a piezo buzzer act as system speaker? https://man.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=speaker

    Solved enable console beep

    I want to have my console beep, even though the sound is rather primitive, it works, I use it for alerts so I take action. And, maybe I like the simplicity of it, though you can additionally control the tone and duration, play multiple notes, etc. You can really get creative there, if you want...

    Is it possible to redirect speaker to audio device?

    Is it possible to redirect speaker to audio device? How? My computer does not have speaker, but has audio working. and I want to use it without monitor running a special program. Perhaps the command morse helps. And it would be nice to have a morse login shell, morsesh :).

    On Linux (gag), I can issue this to device /dev/console: ioctl(fd,KIOCSOUND,6087 /* G below middle C */) ... but even though FreeBSD defines the KIOCSOUND ioctl in /usr/include/sys/kbio.h, it seems to return error 25, Inappropriate ioctl for device (and returns the same if the device is...

    Solved Silencing beeping internal computer speaker

    Is there a way to disable the internal computer speaker (Desktop PC) from beeping during normal use? I am using XFCE4 and when I use the right arrow keys once I've reached the rightmost location in certain applications, it makes the computer's internal speaker beep (which is annoying). I would...

    How to make console beep?

    Backspace at empty prompt in console makes PC-speeker "beep!", also hitting 'Control-G'. Doing this in KDE-Konsole generates a sound. So far this behaviour is expected. But all my attempts generating a console-beep in scripts fail. Doing this # echo "^G^G^G" ^G^G^G just makes no...

    ThinkPad R61, console/terminal bell/beep, snd_hda

    I have a Lenovo ThinkPad R61 that loses the "system beep" when the audio driver attaches to the hardware. If I remove "snd_hda_load=YES" from loader.conf and boot up, I get beeps if I generate a terminal bell on the console or in an xterm, and plugging/unplugging the AC adapter also produces the...

    /dev/speaker default/boot permissions

    Quick question, am I correct in understanding that whenever the 'speaker' module gets loaded, /dev/speaker's permissions get reset to root? If so, how (without doing a hackish @reboot cron), do I default it to .. other permissions? I'd like my user to be able to access it (so I can add '; beep'...

    no pc/console speaker after portupgrade

    Alright, I'm not 100% sure that it stopped after the portupgrade, but I'm not sure exactly when it stopped. The computer (it's a laptop) used to beep all the time, and .. now I can't get it to beep at all. The only reasonable time I think it could have stopped was a portupgrade...
