After todays or yesterdays daily package update (Sid) several kernel modules,
snd-hda-intel and probably others are not loaded
automatically anymore. So my Thinkpad
had no support for audio and several power management functions anymore. Once
I found out that the missing kernel modules where the problem, the fix was
easy: just add the corresponding module names to
/etc/modules to enforce
loading of the modules. But I wonder what caused the sudden change? Why are
the modules not loaded automatically anymore? I usually update my Sid packages
every morning so some package update from yesterday or today might have caused
this. Looking at the packages which where updated, I found nothing suspicious.
Has anyone an idea at which package I should look?
Update: Looks like the problem was
related to the recent update of
base-files to version 6.2 which introduced
/run directory in combination with udev. Downgrading
version 6.1 (via
fixed the problem.
