Stopping the OpenMoko startup sound

OpenMoko 2007.2 makes a very loud startup sound.  To mute it, do the following:

In /etc/pulse/session, replace:

 load-sample startup /usr/share/openmoko/sounds/startup_openmoko.wav


 load-sample startup /usr/share/openmoko/sounds/touchscreen_click.wav

(or any other subdued wav file you wish to upload onto the device).

Update: The OpenMoko team has sensibly replaced the load startup sound with a much more unintrusive sound.
