To see whether a module is loaded, you can use the command lsmod.

There is also a file that contains a log of the startup info.

You're doing things the difficult way, not the Debian way.

ERROR: No Sound Modules found ???????????????????
? ?
? You don't seem to be running a kernel with modular sound ?
? enabled. (soundcore.o was not found in the module search path). ?
? To use sndconfig, you must be running a kernel with modular ?
? sound, such as the kernel images shipped with Debian Linux or ?
? a 2.2 or greater kernel.

Remember this is a 2.6 kernel if that makes any difference.

According to what was explained to me, sndconfig works with OSS and not ALSA. However, if you look here:
http://packages.debian.org/testing/sound/sndconfig (that is for testing, i.e. Sarge at the moment)

it seems that this is not strictly true, unless one of those dependents depend on OSS. In any case, you have ALSA running for sure. The modules listed as snd_XXX are from ALSA, the others probably from OSS, according to what I have read on these forums. (Can you tell that a lot of my knowledge is not very reliable, I think I will let the more experienced folks help you.) However, you probably installed OSS yourself since the 2.6 kernel only loads ALSA by default. (This I know.)

I would look to make sure you have the OSS modules uninstalled and stick with ALSA. Their homepage:
http://www.alsa-project.org/

There you can find more explicit info on your card. Know thy hardware.

You might like to read this:
http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php?page=FAQ029

As far as I can tell though (but remember I am stuck too), the best way is with modconf. Since I think you now have it installed, enter modconf. You'll come to a graphical text screen. READ AS YOU GO, and use page down to go down to the entries that have to do with sound and OSS, such as /kernel/sound/oss. Have a look at them by hitting enter, and see if any have + signs next to them. (NB: Again, any of the modules named snd-XXX are ALSA and you can leave them.) If you think you have found some OSS modules that don't belong that are marked with +, you can remove them by highlighting them and hitting Enter, then selecting yes or no.

It's a good idea to carefully note which modules you've altered.
