cd /usr/share/sounds/

mv startup.ogg startup.ogg.disabled

mv shutdown.ogg shutdown.ogg.disabled

this is the command to play the sound:

ogg123 -q --audio-buffers 4096 /usr/share/sounds/shutdown.ogg.bak
ogg123: Unbekannte Option »--audio-buffers«
Cannot open 4096.

(i guess you don’t need the audio-buffers option)

also interesting:
