Every time I get a new (to me at least) computer, I have to solve a number of problems, one of the more urgent of which, once I have Linux or a reasonable facsimile working, is the constant, annoying beeping of Bash autocompletion and vim. Here's how I disabled them this time:

jcomeau@colinux-squeeze:~$ tail ~/.inputrc ~/.vimrc
==> /home/jcomeau/.inputrc <==
set bell-style none

==> /home/jcomeau/.vimrc <== set modeline set noerrorbells visualbell t_vb=
