SCO Unix, Xenix and ODT General FAQ

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

How can I control the sound of the SCO Unix console bell or turn on keyclicks?

Oddly enough, both of these are controlled by options to "setcolor".



 setcolor -k           turns on keyclick for the console
 setcolor -p 5000 2     affects the CTRL-G bell
 

Both of these can also be controlled in the GUI Preferences Editor: Bell is the beep and Keyboard controls both the keyclick volume and the autorepeat rate.

UNIX does not allow path names to be prefixed by a drive name or number; that would be precisely the kind of device dependence that operating systems ought to eliminate. (Andrew S. Tanenbaum)
