    playing sound through the mobo speakers


    for instance, you can

    Code:
    cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp
    to make static noise come out of your mobo speakers.

    Is there anyway to play a sound clip to the mobo speakers through any method that can be called via command line?

    Well I know on my system /dev/dsp is my main soundcard, which is an onboard and my USB headset shows up as /dev/dsp1. So I guess in theory you could actually use the motherboard speakers as your primary soundcard, though I'm sure it'd be more novelty. Are you talking about an actual speaker wired directly or the system speaker for beeps?
