I modified in the following way to play mp3 sounds on the integrated speaker connected to the soundcard on my board (mpeg321 is installed to play mp3s).
(My board does not have a mainboard beeper.)

It works for the startup but not for the shutdown jingle. The shutdown sound does not work with the file used for startup either.
What could be wrong with my

Also: Maybe someone has a recording of the original pfsense jingle, that would be awesome.

Packages / Cron does not function correctly with Ramdisk
« on: October 20, 2014, 01:20:18 pm »
I am running the regular installation of pfsense 2.1.5 but used the option: Use memory file system for /tmp and /var
to prolong the life of my SSD.

I installed the cron package and added the line (from gui):
*/60 * * * * /usr/local/bin/python /usr/shutdown/
The script does execute faulty when started this way.

Now, if I disable the ramdisk and edit the crontab from shell (as root) it works:
crontab -e
*/60 * * * * /usr/local/bin/python /usr/shutdown/

Upon enabling the ramdisk again, this crontab is unfortunately forgotten by the system. (Probably  it is stored on the /var or /tmp partition.) But if I disable the ramdisk from the gui, the entry is back and can be found entering: crontab -l.

How can I make this entry persistent on the ramdisk? Any Ideas?
