Description David Marec 2016-04-13 18:38:16 UTC
There is a misprint  in both 10.3 release notes and commit message,
about the new vt sysctl key.


the key to enable/disable bell in vt is not
 into kern.vt 's OIDs.

Moreover, there is still nothing about this in vt(4) man page.
Comment 1 David Marec 2016-04-13 20:04:37 UTC
Created attachment 169298 [details]
new tunable enable_bell

To update the man page, the few lines:

+.It Va kern.vt.enable_bell
+Enable terminal bell.

may be enough.

Copying in the two people involved in the original commit:

Yes, the key is enable_bell.
Comment 4 Tiwei Bie 2016-04-15 09:19:51 UTC
(In reply to david.marec from comment #1)

I don't think it's a good idea to put these lines to the 'KEYBOARD SYSCTL TUNABLES' section. Maybe a new section should be added?

Comment 6 Warren Block freebsd_committer 2016-04-18 02:39:31 UTC
I have updated the man page.
Comment 7 Benedict Reuschling freebsd_committer 2016-05-08 12:45:55 UTC
Is the MFC done, so we can close this PR?
Comment 8 Warren Block freebsd_committer 2016-05-08 15:17:17 UTC
The MFC is done, but the release notes are re@ territory and I did not change them.
Comment 9 Mark Linimon freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2018-08-05 06:18:26 UTC
Assign to maintainer of release notes.  This may be OBE by now, though.
Comment 10 Oleksandr Tymoshenko freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2019-01-21 18:46:59 UTC
Closing as OBE, there is no point in updating release notes now.
