Since that is an important feature
defaults to compile with Xkk now. The LKM is optional.

Thank you for your efforts!

Re: Gbeep
Thank you for the information. Fortunately,
FancyBell theoretically does not depend on any
kernel :). With an Xkb-aware application, it will
also be able to ring different "bells" on
different events in a unified manner like Windows
does. It is the merit of using the Xkb extension,
I think.

If you have Gnome be sure to have a look at GBeep.
It's doesn't depend on X and replaces the linux
console bell also. Though a Linux Kernel Module
(LKM) is needed.
