    startup sound - any cheatcode to disable?

    I've got a laptop that has really loud speakers, and every time I start knoppix it will blast my ears. Is there a cheatcode to disable the startup sound?

    NOSOUND will disable the sound completely, but I just want to disable the startup sound.

    Just renaming the files /usr/share/sounds/startup.ogg and /usr/share/sounds/shutdown.ogg will disable the startup/shutdown sounds.

    (This works if you have a persistence partition/file on your flash drive)

    No need for renaming since there is a dedicated cheatcode (boot option): nostartsound. This disables both the start and shutdown sound "message".
