* [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

 I've seen several posts  about how to turn off beeping  in X, but I've
 not been able  to locate a response  on how to turn  off console based
 beeping.  I'm using csh, but  could use bash...does someone happent to
 know the  wawy to turn  off console beeping  in the .cshrc  or .bashrc
 file?

For bash:

$ echo set bell-style none  ~/.inputrc

Restart bash and enjoy :-) For explanations, see readline(3).

It has nothing to do with your shell.

# kbdcontrol -b off

See kbdcontrol(1) for various other things you can tweak about the way
the bell sounds.

Cheers,

Re: beeping on console...NOT X - related question

2003-11-14 Thread William O'Higgins
On a related note, where do you set the amount of scrollback kept in the
console or xterm?  If I want to Shift-PageUp I can only go a few screens
before stopping.  I don't need to scroll back to the beginning of
something really silly like 'find / *e*', but I'd love to be able to get
back to the beginning of 'dmesg' (I know, I should pipe to 'less' or a file,
but I like being able to retrace my steps when I realize partway through
that I should have been running 'script').  Thanks.

Try using sysctl hw.syscons.bell=0 ,that should stop the beeping on your 
console.
