#8755 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add an 'audio' group by default if kmod-alsa is installed.

Reported by: Okkel Klaver <info@…> Owned by: hauke
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


alsa needs a group called 'audio' present on the system. If it can't find an 'audio' group, it will fail. This patch adds an 'audio' group with number 29 to the system. 29 is also used by debian/ubuntu.
