Bug Description

Binary package hint: alsa-utils

I got a failure message while upgrading alsa-utils from update-manager.

Running the script by hand shows:

mbp@grace [1 job]% sudo sh -x /var/lib/dpkg/info/alsa-utils.postinst configure
+ set -e
+ S=/etc/modprobe.d/sound
+ [ -f /etc/modprobe.d/sound ]
+ dpkg --compare-versions le 1.0.23-2ubuntu3.3
+ cat /proc/asound/cardconfigure/id
+ id=

There is an apparently incorrect use of $1 in the line that generates the /proc path.
