Question loadkeys customizations WITHOUT tty echo?

short of it is this:

d600 latitude laptop running slack 10.2
multimedia keys for vol-,vol+ and mute (114,115,and 113 respectively).

i create and load a loadkeys conf and give it the parameters i wish to pass on key-press as below:
string F100 = "/usr/bin/amixer sset Headphone,0 2- unmute; amixer sset Master,0 2- unmute\n"

keycode 114 = F100

which works great...however it also echos to whatever tty im on and that obviously is a pain in my arse.

i've tried > /dev/null at various entry points... hell, i would even be ok with piping it to /dev/tty6, since i already feed my syslog there in real-time. none of my syntax changes seem to kill or redirect the output.

any ideas (or alternatives, keeping in mind that i dont use x)?
thanx in advance, peace!
