Re: Crypted LVM and beep tones

Hi, If speech is enabled and as I set the initial ramdisk to generic to include all drivers why not include the espeakup and sound packages so you could have speech during this process?  I myself also use this encryption feature and as you could always create a key file and add it to another luks slot I would not rather have to do this as I am not sure if there is a timeout when that prompt appears after booting.  It would be nice to have speech during that process or if a Braille display was connected Braille support or better yet both.  Nick Gawronski

I have to crypt my harddisk for my working laptop. Allthough it is no big
problem to enter the encryption password some seconds after grub I wonder if a
acustical signal could be played that tells me that the password prompt is
displayed. Also a signal about successfully entered the password or not would be
really cool.

Does anyone know if acustical signals are possible for the described situation?
Beep tones like for grub would be absolutely enough.
