Package: discover
Version: 2.0.6-3
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line ***
The good old discover 1.5.1 reported correctly my es1371 sound card.
Now I upgraded to discover 2, and after a reboot, the sound card "died".
It is not an hardware failure, since a knoppix reboot finds perfectly
working sound.

$ discover sound
discover: Bus not found.

By the way, the packaging system has some trouble with discover: In
upgrading to discover 2, it keeps libdiscover1 1.5.?, which is then
proposed for upgrade to 1.7.?.  At this point, it conflicts with package
discover and a "blind" acceptance of the dependencies enforcement proposed
by aptitude leads to removal of discover...

That's true in discover's case, but not in hotplug's, as I understand
hotplug.  And I appreciate that simple and mostly true messages are
often better than complex and mostly unread ones, so I won't insist on a

Nope.  I'm closing the bug, then.
