Getting the nslu2 (with debian) to talk


I own an nslu2 on wich i run debian, for use as a small home-server and place from where i can ssh to the rest of the network

for those of you that are looking how to do this, please see this page

annyway getting it to produce a sound, anny sound can be quite usefull when running scripts and cronjobs.

First install beep
$ apt-get install beep

on a normal Debian system you would just give it the beep command
$ Beep

but to get your nslu2 to sing you should go
$ beep -e /dev/input/by-path/platform-ixp4xx-beeper*
