    AntiX 17 on a lenovo t60 ,everything is going great, except for one thing.
    There’s an annoying beep at every startup, which I can’get rid of.
    It’s exactly the moment between the boot finishes and the desktop comes up.

    I allready looked for some options, but can’t find a solutuion.
    In bios all alarms are disabled
    snd_pcsp module is disabled by default in antix
    In / etc/default/grub theres GRUB_INIT_TUNE which is outcommented

    It would be nice, if someone could help, cause I dont like everyone in the house is falling out of bed, if I turn my laptop on in the night.

    Figured it out,
    In etc/modprobe.d/pc-speaker.conf I had to blacklist also pcspkr
    This is solved.


    Athough I like the beepybeep (and still enjoy listening to the huge midi music collection I’ve accumulated)…

    thanks for posting the solution, er, “tip” !
