[Debian-olpc-devel] Bug#581504: sucrose-0.88: should Recommend alsa-utils to initialise mixer

Package: sucrose-0.88
Version: 0.88.0-2
Severity: normal

sucrose-* should add Recommends: alsa-utils. Without alsa-utils, all mixer channels will be muted after boot. Since Sugar uses snd_mixer_selem_set_playback_volume_all() which - at least on XO-1 - only sets the Master channel (and not PCM etc.), no playback will be audible even after unmuting and changing the volume using the Speaker frame device.
