PC speaker beeps when I reboot and shutdown

Each time I reboot or shutdown my computer from within FVWM the PC speaker makes a beep. Is something wrong and how do I make it stop doing this??

This is what I have in my fvwm2rc file:

DestroyMenu MenuFvwmQuitVerify
AddToMenu MenuFvwmQuitVerify “Really Quit Fvwm?” Title

  • “&R. Restart” Restart
  • “&O. Log out” Quit
  • “&R. Reboot” exec sudo shutdown -r now
  • “&S. Shutdown” exec sudo shutdown -h now
  • “&C. Cancel” Nop

and this is what I have in my sudoers file:

This file MUST be edited with the ‘visudo’ command as root.

See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.

It’s normal… The only way you could do it is to do:

Exec exec setterm -blength 0 -bfreq 0

before you shutdown. I haven’t tried this, of course. I’m also trying to stretch my imagination about how this is related to Fvwm… :stuck_out_tongue:
