Re: Kernel 2.6.18-1.2200 beeps too often



I disabled it via gnome and gdm:

For Gnome:
system > preferences > sounds > System Beep

and for the startup run gdmsetup and turn sound off in the Accessibility tag.

I am pretty satified with the result. BTW, I use the visual bell of compiz, which I found as useful as the beep, but far less disturbing.

---Beppe---

I would vote to turn it off, but I'm fine with it if others find it
useful.

To turn that off system-wide just put in /etc/modprobe.conf this
line:

install pcspkr :

This will work the next time modules are loaded.  For now you
can do 'modprobe -r pcspkr'.

If you want to silence that where 'readline' is used, like in bash,
then make your own ~/.inputrc with 'set bell-style none' there
(details in 'info bash') and that hopefully should do it.
