[Pkg-alsa-devel] Bug#369449: alsamixer cannot find alsa.conf

Package: alsa-utils
Version: 1.0.11-4

When I invoke alsamixer from a terminal it exits with the error message:
# alsamixer
ALSA lib control.c:816:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL default
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory

Strace showed the following line:

0xaf93f7cc) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Creating the directory
and linking /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf solved the problem temporarily
and alsamixer started just fine.
