Apple //e could beep w/o a sound card too...we even had it talking.

My understanding the speaker is wired to harmony device.
Driver needs to tell harmony to make beep if that's what you
want coming out of the speaker.

My guess is bash "sound" isn't being directed to /dev/audio or
whatever device it needs to tell to make a beep.  I was asking
to verify the driver is in place and working.
