alsa-utils suggests no packages.

-- no debconf information

In Squeeze, there often is no sound if the computer has two soundcards and the second one is used.

In Lenny, there is the same problem. But when this happens, it is fixed by running alsaconf as root.

In package alsa-utils in Squeeze, there no longer is alsaconf, so the problem cannot be fixed.

Soution: the alsaconf script must again be built into the package.
