So now I don't hear any "bong" when my iBook starts, and I have to hit
the mute key before I can hear anything when the computer is up...

So my question is, what do I have to do to restore this ? Can it be done
from Linux ? Thanks for your help.

Reset pram? <ctrl>+<apple>+p+r? or <alt>+<apple>+p+r?

Allright ! It worked with the second one. Thanks a lot.

BTW, the official Apple procedure for resetting the PRAM is to hold down alt + cmd + p + r until you hear the startup chime three times. Apparently some settings can stick and this process ensures that all has indeed been cleared.

an even better way to clear *everything* out of PRAM is to do this:

1. boot into open firmware (opt-cmd-o-f)
2. "reset-nvram"
3. "set-defaults"
4. "reset-all" (machine will reboot)
5. now hold opt-cmd-p-r immediately after this reboot until the machine chimes three times.
