Blow me away! Is there a version of xset without X11? Or: how do I
get X up on my server? I.e.: what do I need to compile it and
launch to get, say, twm up? I bought the loudest old-fashioned
clicky keyboard (for like $80) and it's beautifully loud. Tactile
Plus auditory feedback. It is beyond outstanding. But to bring
this along with some notebook would not be practical. I can barely
hear my desktop's beep when I have mail, so can't hear anything
when I do
% xset c 100 .
Besides, in '99 I was able to gen up regular beep, beep, beep
with each keystroke. --I killed that; after a minute it was
driving me up the bloody wall. But that is the right approach.
---Nutshell, I would like someone with more kernel background than
I have to help me. At least with the compile in diver,
rebuild-install kernel script. Like Polyt noted, it won't be
easy. But I think it's worth a couple weekends' of experimenting.
What kind of desktop computer do you have?
