I am running OpenIndiana development version oi_148 32-bit on a seven-year-old Dell Inspiron 8600.
Seems to be running fine except for one particular annoyance: It freezes whenever a system bell/beep plays.
I have mitigated this by turning the system bell off in gnome-terminal, which I use regularly. But occasionally I trip a system bell by backspacing on the gdm login. Followed by an unending beep and system freeze.
xset -b manages to disable the beep and I haven't been able to trip it again in the OS (yet), but how do I a) make the change permanent and b) disable the bell before I get to the gdm login.
There is no obvious way to disable the bell in my BIOS and I couldn't find the topic mentioned in Solaris or OpenIndiana sites.
I am lost in finding or editing an xorg.conf file (I am from a Linux background). Xorg --configure does not work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
