How can I disable the beep when I reboot Debian 7? I have gone into
/etc/inputrc and made the console not beep and have muted
Beep in a
lsamixer but it still happens. I have seen reference to blacklisting the
pcspeaker module but am not sure I want to kill that all together, I just want to kill this particular alert.
Edit So, it seems this might have something to do with the networking. I was also fixing it so that the wired connection was not trying to connect at boot and, therefore, delaying the boot while DHCP timed out. Fixing that seems to have made the beep go away. Even though the beep is gone, I would still love to understand the why behind all this. I posted a pastebin link in a comment below of what was happening during reboot while the beep was still happening.
