Re: Disable internal PC speaker?

I'd like to have it disabled globally, rather than figuring out the

Also, not that it really matters that much, but I imagine the pcspkr
kernel module consumes some amount of memory.  No reason to have it
eat memory, particularly since I never intend to use it.

Good way to ensure a module isn't going to ruin your day: edit /etc/modprobe.conf and add a line

install evilmodule /bin/true

where evilmodule is pcspkr in this case. Subsequently modprobe will be unable to place it into the kernel, running /bin/true instead and thinking that all went well.
