Well I'll be happy with a signal at gdm time, but in the past there was a
synthesizersound as tune once it was completely started;

No beep on my laptop at that moment, so no signal heared.

How can I check that? the beeeep at grub prompt is OK, idem the blips when
brltty starts is OK,
after taht its silent.
