How to turn off the beep in Ubuntu 8.10 Interpid

Hate the damn beep? Let’s get rid of it!!

Run “lsmod” and look for pcspkr.

If you find it then run “rmmod pcspkr“.

Also, make sure to add this line to your “/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist” file to make the change is persistent accross reboots.

#Remove beeping speaker
blacklist pcspkr


[root@dingo ~]# lsmod | grep pcspkr
[root@dingo ~]# echo "blacklist pcspkr" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
[root@dingo ~]# sudo rmmod pcspkr
