Hi mentors, after installing new Gentoo Linux, I found two things on $dmesg.
First one was easy microcode thing, but the second thing (which was indicated with subject of this thread),
don't know what to do with it.

I brought dmesg here(https://paste.pound-python.org/show/5U2wwDmlUoaYh9Qfnnun/)

As you can see there is some error like below. (part of above linked dmesg)
Code:

[    3.996726] Error: Driver 'pcspkr' is already registered, aborting...


It appears exactly twice. What should I do? and what's the problem?

The question is that you have 2 modules or 2 supports who want to manage the internal speaker, pcspkr and snd-pcsp. The first is already load when the second want to load so the second cannot load, that give the error message. You can deconfigure one of them in the kernel. You alternatively can blacklist one of them to advoid the error message. I prefer snd-pcsp who is alsa over pcspkr.

According to your answer, Can I just ignore that error message?
Also, If I decided to blacklist one of them, you recommend 'blacklist pcspkr', right?

[Solved Edit]

blacklisted pcspkr

[ New Problem Occurred ]

after blacklisting pcspkr, my plasma desktop sound was gone.
When I deleted pcspkr in blacklist file, sound plays OK.
But, that dmesg error occured again, too.

Can I just ignore that ERROR?
