Blacklisting pcspkr

pcspkr is evil! Kill it with fire! No, but seriously, it’s so annoying amirite?! Whenever I’m poking around in a virtual terminal and I hit Tab that damn beep scares the bejesus out of me. Last week I installed ifplugd and it beeps in several different tones whenever the Ethernet cable gets unplugged (or downed, like if I reboot the router). When will the madness end?!

So, we need to kill it! Blacklist it in /etc/modprobe.d/pcspkr.conf:

blacklist pcspkr

Phew. 🙂
