    Default 8.0 Shutdown...

    The PC Speaker beep gets stuck... it hurts...

    Anyone else get this? This is the first bare metal install I've played with.

    hardware specs? I've seen this if it's "too new" or bios issues.

    This is an MSI G31TM-P21. I've used it before, and I have several out in the field.

    It's a Intel G31 chipset with an ICH7 south bridge. If this isn't compatible... we have issues.

    Granted, this isn't anything show stopping. So the beeper doesn't shut up until the thing powers off, bring ear plugs.

    In 3 years of building boxes for Untangle, I've never seen this one. So if you've seen it before than I'll write it off as a random quirk, be greatful that the production of the NG series will soon remove my need for ever hand building another Untangle again and move on.

    so it beeps continuously until it shuts down or just when you initiate shutdown? Have you tried booting an ubuntu livecd on it to see if that replicates the problem?

    It doesn't beep continuously... it emits a continuous tone. That is a good idea... downloading now.

    I doubt it's a generalized compatibility issue. I think it's your board in combo with UT. See what the ubuntu does..also check for a bios update.

    Ubuntu LDS 10.04 won't boot on this box at all, X server configuration issue.

    But here's the fun part... this morning I can't get the thing to replicate! I told it to reboot, that beeped once, and reset, I just ordered a shutdown it beeped once and did it.

    Meh... I'm deploying it now so no more time to have fun with it.

    I saw this once on one of my boxes. It was like the PC Speaker was stuck.
    It only happened once, but it was fairly annoying.

    Never had it happen again.

    Yup, happened to one of our XE boxes and Jim's boxes. First shutdown it made the sound, after that everything was normal.
    to be understood, you must first understand.

    It did it do me every shutdown I ran last night... I did 7 or 8 trying to lock it down. Now this morning... nothing.

    Meh this server is haunted, good thing it's going to a church!
