[Pkg-alsa-devel] Bug#293312: alsa-modules fails to Depend on modutils or module-init-tools

Package: alsa-source
Version: 1.0.8-4
Severity: minor

An alsa-modules package has a Dependency on modutils | module-init-tools.
This is too weak; each such package really Depends on one or the other.

This is not a major problem because every alsa-modules package in the
archive Depends on an appropriate kernel-image package and this in turn
Depends on the right module loader package.

However, alsa-modules packages generated by users do not Depend on
kernel-image packages and so they do have an effective dependency
weakness.  (This bug is very unlikely to bite anyone, though.)
