Does anyone like the beeps during boot-up?

I’ve been meaning to mention this one for a while.  I hate the beeps (I think there are 3 or 4) that were introduced during the boot sequence around the time of the release of 6.907.

The screen is fairly descriptive/indicative of how the boot is going and you can always press CTRL-F1 (which maybe they should mention on the graphical display) to see the detailed console output.

I find the beeps irritate me and disturb the silent environment the Zonbu helped create in the first place.  Beeps are not very Zen.

What do you think, fellow Zonbu users?

  1. It has been fixed and will be part of the next release (= next week). You may consider that it’s a reminder to show you how Zonbu is silent – when there are no unnecessary beeps 😉

    Hello Mr. Zonbu,

    You are a refined contributor; open-minded, constructively critical, helpful and positive.

    Great to see that Gregoire agrees in maintaining the Zen factor. However I have managed to get build 6.999 applied on my Zonbu; now there are two issues:

    – It still beeps (just the once) at the very beginning of startup.
    – Yesterday and today I have had initially problems with playback of video both from files and streamed, then I had problems also with connecting to the network. Neither WiFi or Ethernet connections can be made to work. A ping to http://www.zonbu.com etc. works only intermittently; when it does the response times are in the 140ms-180ms range.

    This beta-testing is fun. Back to you Mr. Zonbu and Papa Zonbu aka Gregoire 😉

    Best Regards, Simon (eAlta Ltd.)
