Ok i have a gentoo installed on my home router for about 4 weeks now

And from today, my router does a high beep, low beep for about 10 secs. it does this 3-4 times per hour the last 3 hours

I have no idea what program is causing this. Have you guys got any idea?

P3 800 pc

running programs:
Named, ncsd, samba, cups, proftpd, courier-imap, apache, firebird

and a distrubuted net client.

Also a firewall that allows me to do NAT and block some ports.

Well, I'm not sure. But if it is as warm in the netherlands as in south germany, your computer is getting too hot. :) Our PC (the other are SUNs ;) ) here is also complaining about the heat with exactly the same concert.

Just an idea... :)

Have you read through any logs for errors? Perhaps it is an error/warning beeb. Depending on the actual sound, my machine makes a high/low beep when it gets hot. Sounds similar to some european police cars.

Yea i checked the logs, it was the first thing I did.

But I think meyerm was right. My pc was set to warn me when cpu temperature went above 60C. My CPU temp was 54 after I had stopped the distributed net client for 5 mins and then rebooted.

Hehe this is the first time my pc's have done that. :)
So its not a linux feature but a bios. Sorry!

Similar yes. Tone is of course quite different.

turn off your router, take your cpu out - and turn on your machine without the cpu in it.

is it the same sound as that makes?
