Default Bug#532005: Found 532005 in Squeeze Kernel 2.6.32-30

Hi Moritz and Matthew,

This is an issue with the current release of Debian Squeeze. The
issue is actually a boot-time load order issue. If the pcspkr module
is inserted into the kernel too early in the boot process (as it is by
default, at least on my system) the beep becomes the evil buzzing honk
the original reporter complained about. However, if it's inserted
late into the boot process, it's the lovely, beautiful, normal, Lenny

So, an effective workaround is to insert the following into your
"/etc/rc.local" file:

modprobe -r pcspkr
modprobe pcspkr

I just figured this out today, and was really happy to have my normal,
Lenny beep back. This probably means that this bug should be
reassigned, but I have no idea where it should be reassigned.

Thanks for your time,
