emacs-nox rings a semi-distant bell but that isn't in the

Start by upgrading your stuff (suggestion) ... I have

$ uname -a
Linux ebih 4.19.0-6-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.67-2+deb10u2
(2019-11-11) x86_64 GNU/Linux

$ lsb_release -d -s
Debian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye)

$ zsh --version
zsh 5.8 (x86_64-debian-linux-gnu)

C-u M-x emacs-version RET
GNU Emacs 28.0.50 (build 1, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, cairo
version 1.16.0) of 2021-08-27
