turn off pcmcia modem speaker

Hey all,

I run SuSE linux 6.1 and my pcmcia modem is running very sexily indeed... apart from it has the speaker enabled and I'd like to turn it off... those connection noises get to me after a while.

How do I do this ?

Go into your kppp and slide the modem speaker voolume bar all the way to the left.

I'm sorrym but I don't use kppp because I use connection scripts.

Also, that's not what I asked for... I actually want to turn off the option that enables the card to use the speakers.

if your modem is V.34 or V.90 compliant you need to add
the following to your initialization string:

AT M0L0                  (note those are zeros)

if there is already an initialization string there you don't need the AT, just add the M0L0  to the end of the initialize string you have.

I could tell you exactly what file to edit if you'd be more specific about what program you are using to connect to the internet and what model/brand of modem you are using.

I'm using the standard pcmcia drivers that come with SuSE run thru the simple "cardctl" and "cardmgr" commands.

I'm not interested in altering the connection files - I'd rather turn off the speaker option altogether.

Add:
                   
module "serial_cs" opts "do_sound=0"
                           
to*

/etc/pcmcia/config.opts

(from "man serial_cs") will disable speaker output completely, (cardctl should show speaker OFF)

* or wherever your pcmcia modules configuration files are stored under SUSE
