Re: constant noise from pc-speaker due system bootup



I have a *really* vague recollection of old systems using the floppy
hardware/comms for comms with the audio.  Though this was really
bespoke, and pre-wd1772a global takup etc.

Either way, disabling the floppy in the BIOS, or (worse) the Kernel
may help.  Otherwise, maybe just pull the flylead to the speaker?

Subject: constant noise from pc-speaker due system bootup

Hi there,

i just installed OpenBSD 3.4 on an old ibm-system (it's a small pentium).
the installation went well, but i got shocked while i tried to boot the
system. 
due the kernel displaying information on the floppy device, the speaker of
the pc begins to make a loud and constant sound. this sound doesn't
disappear, even though the system continues booting up like nothing happened
(at least as long as i let the system run, the sound was terribly :-)

did anybody saw this behavior before? what could i do in order to keep the
system silent instead of disconnection the speaker (what would make normals
beeps also disappear).

Thanks and best Regards

Fabian
