Disable the console beep?


Hi,
Does anybody know how to disable the console beep?
Is there any conf file or a similar approach to do that?
there's a link teaching how to do that but I don't understand what it says..
http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/Visual-Bell
no option in BIOS / Motherboard jump for disabling the PC Speaker...
I am using a Mini-ITX VIA EPIA 5000 motherboard + IPCop-1.3.0.
Cheers,
Frankie

I just cut the wire to the speaker. I also do the same thing to every car that I have ever owned.

ahh c'mon you can do better than that.........


Seeing as you're apparently going for a pretty slimline mini-itx system, and you're already trying to compile a kernel, just don't include the pcspkr module.

ohh it the good old chris.
IPCop compiled the pcspkr into the kernel, not as a module....
and i am still figuring out how to re-compile a kernel for it.
a lot of restrictions you see...... CF card write cycle and stuff (I wrecked the IPCop into a 128MB CF).

I tried to compile kernel-2.6.1 in my redhat box and i tried to put the bzImage into the CF, modify the lilo.conf and boot it off but it doesn't work. Can't load the IMAGE.
Shall I stick the lilo.conf file in here as well?

Cheers,
Frankie

include the following line (or uncomment if commented) in /etc/inputrc
set bell-style none
Also make sure that the following line is present in /etc/profile

if [ -z "$INPUTRC" -a ! -f "$HOME/.inputrc"]; then
INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc
fi

Mmm - the other option that doesn't require a kernel recompile, if you want to stop the system bell, just put in /etc/inputrc:
system-bell none
