udev - How to blacklist pcspkr?


Hi, I'm using Slamd64 with a 2.6.21 kernel, and I'm trying to stop the pcspkr module from loading at boot.
I can see it's not being loaded by any init script, so I guess it's udev that's loading it. I tried putting "blacklist pcspkr" on /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, but it still gets loaded.
What's the proper way to blacklist a module in udev?
Any other suggestions for disabling the pcspkr module are appreciated.

How about this:
Code:
$ sudo rm /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/misc/pcspkr.ko
$ sudo depmod -ae
Problem solved .

Does the "remove module hack" survive a kernel upgrade?

If not, try adding the following line:

Code:
install pcspkr true
to the end of your blacklist file. This works for me in Fedora 7.
