ALSA Wizard fixed

September 11, 2009 — BarryK
It was reported that the ALSA sound Wizard does not work in 4.3beta2.

Yes, this is because of the move from the full 'depmod' to the Busybox 'depmod' applet.

I have modified /usr/sbin/alsaconf so that it runs the full depmod (/sbin/depmod-FULL), with a warning displayed that it may hang on low-RAM systems.

The low-RAM problem is relieved once a swap file/partition is created, so is likely only to be a problem on the first boot, on a 64MB (or less) system.
