Would like to get beep to work in Debian 10

Getting your soundcard to work, using Debian on non-i386 hardware, etc

For anyone who's followed this thread so far -

To determine whether the problem was with my hardware, I ran the lxde iso of Debian 9 live. In that environment, all different forms of beep work without any problems on my laptop. So it appears that the version of Debian 10 I had installed (debian-live-10.3.0-amd64-standard+nonfree.iso) is not configured to support beeping on my laptop.

Since I depend on that beep, I'll be reinstalling a different version of Debian 10. If it all works, I'll be marking this thread as solved.

There is output of the command
Code: Select all
grep BEEP /boot/config-5.3.0-28-generic

on my PC:
Code: Select all
CONFIG_INPUT_GPIO_BEEPER=m
CONFIG_INPUT_PWM_BEEPER=m
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP_MODE=0

sandwich, on your PC pcspkr is booted, if the speaker is really present, beep must be.
/dev/console must be open to writing in the program.

Peter.

For comparing, there is output of the command for kernel from Debian Buster:
Code: Select all
grep BEEP config-4.19.0-8-amd64

Code: Select all
# CONFIG_INPUT_GPIO_BEEPER is not set
# CONFIG_INPUT_PWM_BEEPER is not set
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP_MODE=1

This kernel is from deb-package, I have not Debian installed.
