Thanks for adding /etc/protocols to base. Just one notice. It is not a minimal version but the file used in latest CentOS 6 one to one.

Yikes, rc2 already!!  Thanks

Interesting,  so does the core base gain or loose some feature in this "minimal /etc/protocols"?

Built-in editor beeps on PC's speaker on search, save, etc. It is the only noise application. Please disable.

So too does popup and popask.
In fact all of the fltk-1.10 widgets that "pop up" a dialog (fl_ask, fl_message, fl_input, fl_alert, ...)  sound the beep.
Such is embedded in the bowels of these fltk widgets and would require changes to the fltk libraries.
Nothing new here. Been that way since day one.

Hm... I used screenshot for sure in the past but do not remember it was beeping. Speaker beep depends on a kernel modul pcspkr. Was it there in 3.x? I remember some discussion here about missing speaker sound.

I believe this came about because someone requested that the  beep  function be enabled in  busybox

Don't think it is Busybox related.

Kernel support for beeps was requested for 4.x. You can blacklist the module if you prefer no beeps.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

In 4.0 I can't get ALSA working without tricks. In 4.1rc2 it works fine as expected.
