I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop running Fedora 8. It runs great, but one problem has has me stumped. The system beep (either on the command line or in the GUI) is EXTREMELY loud! I went to System -> Prefs. -> Hardware -> Sound in Gnome and got the GUI beep to stop but I cannot turn it off under the command line outside of X. My usually acute Google skills have failed me and so I now turn to you, my Linux brethren (and sister..en?) for help. where is the option to turn off the system beep?
Also, even now that I have disabled the system beep in Gnome I still receive a loud beep when the logon screen comes up. If I disable the beep in the command line will it end this as well?
Thank you for all of your help.
