Feature changed by: Jiri Srain (jsrain)
Feature #305403, revision 11
Title: Bootloader beep configuration

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

Requested by: Jiri Srain (jsrain)

Description:
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.

Discussion:
#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
configuration.

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