Re: disable beep for wall command

What's making that horrible beep is the calling of the funtion sigaction() with the first parameter being SIGALRM, and then it being called the function alarm().

As we said, disabling your pc beep disables this, as disabling only the wall will not solve your problem (other programs will also beep the whole time).

If your ALSA mixer does not have this (are you sure?), then maybe your sound card is controlled by other system that's not ALSA. In that case the gnome-volume-control may or may not have the pc beep option, but check the preferences again.
