PostPosted: Mon May 03, 2004 2:00 am    Post subject: Random Beep Reply with quote

I recently emerge rsync; emerge -u world; my gentoo on 867 12" PPC laptop and now seem to be getting a random beep. IT beeped at 11:45 and 11:48 but not 11:49-11:57 by the system clock. I can happen when I am not using the computer and it's sitting idle.

The beep is not as loud as an alert beep. I am connected to a University network but I don't run any alert software (that I know of). I've given a list of installed packages and emerge info.

Any suggestions?

emerge info gives

when emerge thinks it is important for you to look at the screen it beeps. Maybe this is what is happening?

Yes, I've experinced that before but it beeps an alert. This particular beep is quiter than the alert level and occurs when I am not emerging. Also generally the beeps are multiple when emerging rather than a single beep with long random breaks in between which is what is happening.
