Package: alsa-utils
Version: 1.0.28-1
Severity: normal

Kernel modules snd_seq and snd_seq_midi are no longer loaded at boot in Debian

I apologize if this is the wrong package; this functionality was formerly
implemented in alsa-base, but that is a dummy package now. I believe this
continued to work for some time after the alsa-base implementation went away
though, so I think this functionality was maintained in the switch but recently
became broken.

I fixed this on my own system by creating the file /etc/modules-load.d/alsa-
seq.conf with the contents


Since snd_seq_midi depends on snd_seq, this one line loads all the required
