I am running snd-hda-itel on a tp t61p. What the hell is an ugly beep? For me
it is just a beep....
Well the beep can be controlled by the Beep mixer control.
# amixer | grep -A4 Beep

AFAIK the frequency of the beep doesn't vary.
There is a kernelmodul which can be enabled by commenting
# blacklist snd-pcsp
Please don*t ask how this works ;-) AFAIK it uses the internal PC speaker.
Excellent day for drinking heavily.
Spike the office water cooler;-)
