Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53217
silent terminal bell good for clueless laptop users
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:52 EDT
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.
