Hey guys, sorry if this has already been covered, but I can't seem to find anything.

I have my system bell compiled in the kernel, and it can be loaded via 'modprobe pcspkr' but I am unable to adjust the volume settings through alsamixer, and I am also unable to hear a beep using 'echo -e "\a"'

I would honestly like to replace the system bell with xkbbell, as I've got it using xbelld to play a different sound, but I have no idea how to accomplish completely replacing the pcspkr module and having system beeps use xkbbell.

Can anyone offer assistance with this?

First welcome to Gentoo.
Code:
emerge -av x11-apps/xkbutils

Is what provides /usr/bin/xkbbell
see
Code:
man xkbbell

If you installed X you might have it already

I believe the pcspkr
Code:
PCSPKR_PLATFORM

Is not controllable via alsa
If you dont have a sound card you could try
Code:
CONFIG_SND_PCSP

I have wondered about that module on server.
You could make a server play a song in a data centre somewhere.
See the help text for the module.
You can compile both a modules and try them out.
Hope that helps
Cheers
