[Pkg-alsa-devel] Bug#514661: alsa-base: Dropping the `lsof` dependency

Package: alsa-base
Version: 1.0.17.dfsg-4
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

In a desktop build of debian live, i've noticed alsa drags in lsof as
well as python. I hope alsa can rid itself of the heavy python
dependency, though in the meantime I hope you'll at least drop lsof.

Attached is a patch and it's not as fast as lsof or fuser (from psmisc,
which is much faster than lsof).


Anyway I don't think the small performance decrease is too bad, as I
assume force_unload_modules is called rarely.

Thank you,
