Feature #305403, revision 11
Title: Bootloader beep configuration

- openSUSE-11.2: Evaluation
+ openSUSE-11.2: Candidate
Requester: Desirable
Projectmanager: Desirable

Requested by: Jiri Srain (jsrain)

Allow to configure whether the acoustic signal should be used for
installed bootloader.
Acoustic signal is valuable for visually impaired people, while it may
be disturbing e.g. in libraries.

#1: Jiri Srain (jsrain) (2008-11-12 15:58:43)
Default can be set depending on whether braille display was found or
whether text-to-speech in isolinux was used.

#2: Stefan Behlert (sbehlert) (2008-11-12 17:15:07)
Is this feature meant as 'allow atuomatic setting of'? The beep is
afaik already configurable to be 'off'. If not, this would be a bug.

#3: Stefan Seyfried (seife) (2008-11-12 18:09:40)
Please reject this feature. This is seriously overengineered.
The beep now defaults to off int the installed system. If somebody
wants to enable it, he can do so with
gfxboot --change-config "boot::beep=1"
Marco only needs to document that for his customers and everything is
fine. Please, no YaST module for that.

#4: Jiri Srain (jsrain) (2008-11-13 09:39:44) (reply to #3)
It's not about a new module, just about a check box in the bootloader

+ Jozo, please, find a reasonable location for the check box.
