[ALSA 1.0.9b-4] No more sound, no more alsa-utils package


Hi!

I've updated recently my debian/testing, as i do each week almost (or even each half-week) and the last update shutoff my sound... the alsa-utils package has been uninstalled and now if i want to install it again it says to me that gnome, udev and hal has to be removed...

Can you help me??

Did you upgrade to kernel 2.6.12 recently? If so, make sure you upgrade udev (requires kernel 2.6.12) and try to re-install alsa-utils. I have alsa-utils 1.0.9-a4. Also, make sure you appear in the 'audio' group. Otherwise you may receive error messages such as '/dev/dsp permission denied'.

Once you've reinstalled alsa-utils, run (as root):
% alsaconf
% alsactl store

and just reboot to make sure all modules are properly loaded.

I'm still on 2.6.11 kernel... But it seems that the problem comes from the dependencies. Indeed, i've looked forward the alsa-utils package and here is the dependencies i've discovered:

Conflict: udev (<0.060)

And the only udev available in the testing repository is udev 0.056-3... And if i want to uninstall udev, then i've got the same "do you want to remove also gnome, hal, etc... ?" stuff...
So it seems that udev 0.060 should be include soon in the testing repository, but meanwhile we've got to wait without any sound

I'll reply later when everything will be repaired.

This is easily fixed by just installing the alsa-utils-1.0.9a-3 version.
It is compatible with udev .056-3.

Sure, it should still be there....
See below for how to find multiple versions & install desired release.

Code:
# apt-cache showpkg alsa-utils
Package: alsa-utils
Versions:
1.0.9a-4(/var/lib/apt/lists....testing_main_binary-i386_Packages)
1.0.9a-3(/var/lib/dpkg/status)

</snip>

# aptitude install alsa-utils=1.0.9a-3
