Red Hat / Fedora :: How To Beep At End Of Installation
Jul 29, 2010
I am using anaconda + ks.cfg to install Linux.
In my case installation does not require any actions from me and there is no need to sit next to PC but it takes some time so I would like to hear some loud sound at the end of the process (e.g. something similar to result of echo -e "a" command) but I cannot find appropriate place in ks.cfg to add thing like this
It is extremely load and aggravating. My version 9.10. I am have no other issues with the internal speaker besides the low power beep. I have tried: blacklist pcspkr in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (actually was already done in 9.10) in gconf-editor gone to apps gnome-power manager, unchecked low power notification
gone to sound preferences muted alert volume. If this was a desktop i would just physically disable the internal speaker, but i don't want to open up my laptop do to possible difficulty of reassembly.
just installed Lucid 64-bit. everything running smoothly including the sound except no system beep from PC speaker. system beep is enabled in system -> preferences -> sound. What else can I try? I'm dual booting with Hardy and system beep works fine in Hardy.
I have a Macbook 5,2, on which I'm triple booting OS X - Linux - Windows, using bootcamp and rEFIt.I had a variation of Ubuntu 10.04 called Uber Student as the linux installation.I installed Ubuntu 11.04 AMD64 instead, by choosing the EFI boot option.Now this gave me some problems. When I shot down, the Macbook gives me a troubling long beep sound.When I start up, I'm still able to boot up into rEFIt and Grub2, but there is a big delay with the screen being black for about 30 seconds and the little white light in the left corner of the Macbook is blinking feverishly. I read something about a guy which had a similar problem and the process seemed to mess up the firmware on his Macbook, so he had to have his MB changed.
What's up with the scary beep sound and the long boot up delay?Secondly, when I want to do an update of the Ubuntu system, the update manager asks me to do a partial upgrade, which includes removing the grub-EFI, resulting in a system that won't boot...
I have the typing break enabled through the keyboard preferences, and when the break ends, I hear an alarm beep (sounds like the alarm on a wristwatch) through my speakers. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to turn this off.
It did not always do this, but started when I upgraded my system to Fedora 12, and it persisted through to the upgrade to F13.
There are three computers in my office running F13, and mine is the only one that does this. I can find no trace online of anyone else having this problem.
My beep command stopped working -- it does not beep. I think this happened when I upgraded to Karmic (but could have been earlier). I use the beep command to notify me of important events.
I tried looking in sound settings, and did not find anything suspicious. I also tried googling but most stuff just describes how to "disable the annoying beep". Lastly, I tried different software channels and repositories to find an alternative program to the beep command, but nothing happened.
I use Mythbuntu 9.10 as HTPC and I got where I can turnoff the computer using remote. But how can I get a "beep" to be played during shutdown? by this I would know the computer is shutting off - it is behind a glas door so I don't see if the led's turns off.
When I was using Windows XP, my notebook was beeping very loud when it was running out of power. Since I use Ubuntu it doesnt. I have tried kpowersave but it somehow cannot play ANY SOUNDS. Now I use default power management and it doesn't beep too. How can I fix it? Its quite important because I often forget to hook it up.
I have a HP Laptop with Ubuntu Hardy installed. The system beep makes rapid clicking sound at login window that slowly dissipate and clicking that, so far I can only fix by rebooting, when I play music, reboot after hibernating, and when waking up from suspend. I've turned the system beep off in System/Preferences/Sound but it doesn't do anything.
Every time I shut down my laptop, this loud beeping noise comes out of my computer. It's just one beep, but it's loud and annoying. This has been happening recently, and not from the start of installing Ubuntu to my laptop.
after installing linux mint 7, I have been getting one beep on shutdown, a google search on this came back as a ram problem...but then i ran across a bunch of posts on ubuntu forums about one beep on shutdown, with an older version of ubuntu, grep does return some paramter errors, but in the mint bug report page those are listed as : benign ignore. it doen't bother me in the least, as long as it isn't a warning of impending hardware failure.
I have a habit of watching videos when I go to sleep. So I decided to start using, for example, the following when I laid down:
sudo shutdown -h -P 60
Of course this shuts down the computer in an hour. I was wondering if there was a way I could get the computer to beep a few times for the last 10 Minutes and then a few more times for the last 5 minutes?
This may seem like a stupid question (if not completely ridiculous ), but I was wondering if there's a way to configure audio events so that I can use a wav/ogg sound instead of the PC speaker's default beep for small events like hitting backspace in a text editor when it's the beginning of the document (or any other illegal keyboard action), or in Wine applications when it calls for an "asterisk" sound (it just beeps the PC speaker).
I've looked at similar threads, but they mainly just talk about either the beeps that the machine does when it boots up, or simply turning off the beeping completely. What I want to do is substitute the beeps (that are caused by the OS) for an actual sound that's played through the ALSA/OSS/whatever audio device.
My asus 17" lcd VB171/VB191 monitor has started continuous beeping. Detaching the cable for sound from the computer, the beep stops, but it starts again by plugging the cable in. The motherboard is Tyan S2895 K8WE. The monitor has worked normally for one year.
I have replaced my motherboard, cpu, ram with a retailed 'bundle' of components. When I power up, the cpu fans spins and i can feel my hard drive vibrating but There is no post beep. I could connect one of two four pin pwr2 leads to a motherboard; the first has yellow and black leads, the second, red purple black and yellow. Have you any ideas on my next move?
In order to make alt key works in vim in xterm (I set metaSendEscape in order to make other application works well), I put this in .vimrc:
for i in range(65, 90) + range(97, 122) exe "set <M-".nr2char(i).">=<Esc>".nr2char(i) endfor set ttimeoutlen=50
But the vim will beep (and do some strange thing) after starts. (In urxvt there is no problem). I use binary search to find that it is i = 80 cause the problem. If I just only put "set <M-P>=^[P" in vimrc(^[ is Ctrl-V <ESC>). Xterm also will beep. (Only P will) It is really a weird behavior. The thing which is weirder is if you directly run ":<M-P>=^[P" there is no problem. It only occur when this line is in vimrc.
When I had Lenny installed I made this computer be my alarm clock (with sanduhr) to wake me up for school in addition to my mom's TV (because I am a heavy sleeper) and now I cannot use this computer to do so. I'm not saying it's a bug. I'm just asking, how do I enable it again? I know that with Lenny to enable/disable beeping, I went to System=>Preferences=>Sound but now I don't see how to make beeping work again.
I blacklisted the pcspkr module on my system(rebooted and confirmed it no longer loads). The majority of annoying beeps are now gone. I have 2 instances where it still beeps though. Whenever GNOME first starts(before I login though) and if i am in GNOME at a terminal and type reboot. Any thoughts on disabling this?
I'm running ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell XPS M1530. Sometimes i get a _VERY_ loud beep-sound, eg when i run out of battery or, the case that has me coming here when i'm working in a virtual terminal (tty1-6) and hit backspace once too often, that is, when the command line is actually empty.Not that big of a deal you might think, but, especially when you're wearing good (read: possibly loud) headphones the experience is that god damn unpleasant that i'd like to make sure it won't happen again.Oh and well, just hitting mute (in gnome, which doesn't have a lot to do with tty1 anyways) won't do the job.
I like the system beep because I can tell checkgmail to beep when an email comes, that way my speakers don't have to be on.Anyways, I did a fresh install of Karmic the other day. Something is being weird with me when I try to re-enable the beep. Karmic blacklisted pcspkr in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf . Here's what happens:I leave "blacklist pcspkr" in blacklist.conf and restart. I do "sudo modprobe pcspkr" and then "beep", and it beeps. Good.
Then I comment out "blacklist pcspkr" in blacklist.conf and restart. I do "beep". Nothing. I do "sudo modprobe pcspkr" and then "beep". Nothing. I do "lsmod | grep pcspkr". It's listed there as it should be. I check with "sudo grep pcspkr /var/log/dmesg" and find no errors.
We have a COM Express carrier board with Intel Atom processor.What happens is COM board issues a reset signal every 3 sec.I am not sure whether its entering BIOS or not..I could not hear any beep..It is difficult to probe the POST error codes on port 80 in this board.And there is no way for display also..Is there any fatal errors where BIOS resets the CPU..?..As far as I know it just halts on encoutering a fatal error..
My laptop beeps three times during the resume from hibernation. How can I disable this beeping. I use CentOS 5.3. Interestingly, this issue did not occur when I used CentOS 5.2 on the same laptop last year.
My server is headless, so I'd like to make it beep when it finishes booting. Some posts in the forum seem to indicate this is the default setting, but my box has no sound when login prompt appears. The speaker does work since it beeps once at the start of the booting process (probably BIOS' doing). "lsmod | grep pcspkr" shows "pcspkr 7105 0", lspci shows nothing related to speaker.
Also I'd like to know how I can test the speaker from command line (remote ssh terminal), will echo -e "007" work?
I'm using Debian Squeeze on my Presario CQ40-115AU. Whenever Squeeze finished boot (when the login screen appears), there a loud beep sound come out. The same sound also come out when rebooting/shutting down my laptop and this had never happened when I'm using Lenny. Where can I configure so the sound won't come out ever again.
I got a problem with a Dell Latitude E5500. I can not disable the hardware beep after the gdm3 login screen has been loaded. All alsa beeps and system sounds are disabled and/or muted. I also tried setterm -blength 0, xset -b in startup scripts. They disable terminal-beeps, but not the halt or the gdm login beep. I tried wasting around with the gconftool, but nothing happened. It is an annoying sound. If you use, init 0 to shut down, no beep comes up.
