Don't know at all if this helps:

Description: ALSA wrapper for OSS applications
This package contains a program loader, aoss, which wraps
applications written for OSS in a compatibility library,
thus allowing them to work with ALSA.
There are two ways of getting an application to work with
ALSA if the application was written for OSS. The first way
is to load the special ALSA drivers that emulate the OSS
kernel interface; these allow the application to open
/dev/dsp0 and other OSS device files. The second way is
to wrap the application in the libaoss library provided
in this package; the wrapper causes the application to
access native ALSA device files such as /dev/snd/pcmC0D0c
instead of OSS device files.
Use of the alsa-oss library is recommended over the use of
OSS-emulation drivers if you want to use ALSA's PCM plugin
ALSA is the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture:
OSS is the free version of the Open Sound System.

Kernel-level OSS emulation via the snd-pcm-oss and snd-mixer-oss and snd-seq-oss modules
Incidentally, in case it was not a typo, it's modprobe with an e.
