I've used the following script here:
to upgrade Alsa to 1.0.21 in Ubuntu 8.04.
Now whenever I run:
sudo shutdown -h <time> or sudo reboot
from the terminal I get a rather annoying beep sound. What's even more annoying is if I use the shutdown command to specify a time I get a beep every 10 minutes or so.
I've tried disabling the terminal beep in the terminal profile, disabling the beep in System/Preferences/Sound, adding "blacklist pcspkr" to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, and running gconf-editor from the terminal and setting /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/bell_mode to 'off' rather than 'on'.
This is rather annoying considering I use the shutdown command a lot when watching movies/TV series.
Anyone got any ideas on how to turn this thing off?
