Description Joshua Jensen 2001-09-05 05:56:59 UTC
It hit me while I was sitting on the airplane (after someone asked me to "turn 
off the beep")... wouldn't a "setterm -bfreq 0" in /etc/bashrc (or maybe 
/etc/profile.d/somefile) be nice for "laptop" class installs?  Maybe this is a bad 
idea, but clueless users that do automatic laptop installs probably don't have 
any idea on how to do this, and a silent default is much preferible for these 
users how generally use the laptop class of installation.

Just an idea...

The installer doesn't support changing post-install settings based on install
classes, but adding the line (commented out) to /etc/skel/.bashrc so people can
find out easier how to do it is a good idea...
Done that in 2.05b-6.
