    Exclamation System hangs (freezes) on system bell/beep

    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.

    Default Solved

    I ended up installing Solaris 11, but with the same beeping issued. But my beeping problems were finally solved with the infocmp commands here : blogs.sun.com / vl / entry / turn_the_bell_off_on (sorry, I didn't have enough "points" to post a hyperlink... stupid).
