At present, my system is Slack-Current with KDE 3.4
Any help would be great!
What kernel are you using? ALSA needs specific kernel modules. If you're stick with the default kernel in -current (2.4.29), you will also have to use the 2.4.29 ALSA modules, which are found in the slackware/l directory of Slackware 10.1. The package you'll need then is alsa-driver-1.0.8_2.4.29-i486-1.tgz.
I'm not sure if swaret upgrades this at all, but please check if you've got this package installed (if swaret works right, it should be listed in /var/log/packages).
Reply what you've found :-)
