Please see this bug report:
Essentially, the PC speaker has been disabled long time ago and it does
not work by default on Fedora. Some applications actually require the PC
speaker in order to provide full functionality - like X-Chat beeping on
There is a fairly simple workaround, just run this command once:
"/sbin/modprobe pcspkr" then add the same command to the end
of /etc/rc.d/rc.local to make the change permanent across reboots.
However, it needs to get a real solution, not just a workaround. If you
feel the same, please add your comments to the bug report mentioned
