[Pkg-alsa-devel] Bug#402601: alsa-utils: Module no automatically added to /etc/modules after running alsaconf

Package: alsa-utils
Version: 1.0.13-1
Severity: normal

I succeeded in finding my ISA sound card by probing with alsaconf. It
did also correctly set up the alias in /etc/modprobe/sound.

However, on reboot the sound card was not immediately available, as
the module had not been added to /etc/modules. I would have expected
that had been done by alsaconf. At least alsaconf should ask whether
the module should be autoloaded, or print out a message that the user
can add it manually to /etc/modules.

Regards, Thue
