alsa problems

Hello. I've been trying to get alsa to work, but no luck. I have a 2.4.27-speakup kernel. My soundcard is a soundblaster Live! card. I tried modprobe, with the following result:

debian:/home/mark# modprobe snd-emu10k1
/lib/modules/2.4.27-speakup/updates/alsa/snd-util-mem.o: /lib/modules/2.4.27-speakup/updates/alsa/snd-util-mem.o: unresolved symbol snd_hidden_kcalloc
/lib/modules/2.4.27-speakup/updates/alsa/snd-util-mem.o: /lib/modules/2.4.27-speakup/updates/alsa/snd-util-mem.o: unresolved symbol snd_hidden_kmalloc
/lib/modules/2.4.27-speakup/updates/alsa/snd-util-mem.o: /lib/modules/2.4.27-speakup/updates/alsa/snd-util-mem.o: unresolved symbol snd_hidden_kfree
/lib/modules/2.4.27-speakup/updates/alsa/snd-util-mem.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.27-speakup/updates/alsa/snd-util-mem.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.27-speakup/updates/alsa/snd-util-mem.o: insmod snd-emu10k1 failed
This is similar to what I get with alsaconf, module-assistant, update-modules, etc. I used the alsa-source to create modules for the speakup kernel. Any help is appreciated.

Why not the alsa-modules-2.4.27-x-xx package? Or doesn't that work with the speakup kernel (which I've never heard of before this post)?

alsa-modules-2.4.27-x-xxx package

Your suggestion did work, when the alsa-modules-2.4.27-1-386 package was available. I created a link to the file (naming it to get sound working. However, after a recent dist-upgrade, sound stopped working. The alsa-modules-2.4.27-1-386 package was no longer available (it was now alsa-modules-2.4.27-2-386). This package would only install with the corresponding kernel image. I tried to create a link to the from the alsa-modules-2.4.27-2-386, but got various errors. I then tried to build it from source (which created alsa-modules-2.4.27-speakup) but I still get errors.
