Why system beeped?

Postby hack3rcon » 2020-02-25 08:44

Hello,
When I launch a program like VirtualBox then my System beeped like when it wants to boot. How can I find the root of this beep?

Thank you.

You've changed your sound preferences/theme.

No, When I run VirtualBox then it beeped and VM sound card enabled too.

The beep could indicate problems with configuration, hardware, software, ...

Did you check the VirtualBox logs? I believe the location is:
Code: Select all
$HOME/.VirtualBox/Machines/<vm name>/Logs

I don't know why VB would do it, but using kvm with vfio I get those beeps when an irq is dangerously remapped, and again on close when it's re-remapped, de-remapped?

Maybe launch from a terminal and watch whatever feedback that gives, listening for the beep. Also keep a dmesg tail running. I think it's generally not good. I assume it is the motherboard beep we're talking about, present without any other sound hardware and not coming from your 'speakers'.

Do you mean it beeps when you launch the Virtual Manager GUI, or when you start up a guest OS?

What version of VBox do you have installed, and did you get it from Debian or Oracle?
