oss4 - continuous beep

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – It seems that I have successfully blacklisted pcspkr by inserting install pcspkr /bin/false in modprobe.conf in /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf and then adding this file to files section in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and finally doing mkinitcpio -p linux. I guess if there is a way to correctly configure oss and be sure that it works by keeping blacklisted pcspkr because if I have not properly configured oss, and I remove the blacklist done, a loud beep starts to sound. So I only want to remove the blacklist when I am sure oss is correctly configured. I want to avoid the annoying beep that never stops. (HowTos)
