[Pkg-alsa-devel] Bug#912721: libasound2-plugins: Sound no longer works after latest update

Package: libasound2-plugins
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

After updating to the latest version of libasound2-plugins, sound on
my system stopped working. Trying to start `alsamixer' failed as well
with the following error message:

ALSA lib conf.c:3639:(config_file_open) cannot access file

It turns out that libasound2-plugins installs broken symlinks in
/etc/alsa/conf.d. All symlinks installed by libasound2-plugins in
/etc/alsa/conf.d are broken, because the corresponding files in
/usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf.d do not exist.

Best regards,
