problem with ALSA, no sound through alsa, oss works SB Live! 5.1

Hi all, I have a problem with alsa. I can't here any sound using alsa driver, but oss works. When I play XMMS with alsa output it says this:
ALSA lib confmisc.c:1283:(snd_func_refer) Unable to find definition 'defaults.namehint.extended'
ALSA lib conf.c:3500:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_refer returned error: No such file or directory
ALSA lib conf.c:3972:(snd_config_expand) Evaluate error: No such file or directory
ALSA lib pcm_direct.c:1427:(_snd_pcm_direct_get_slave_ipc_offset) Unknown slave PCM hw:0,0

** WARNING **: alsa_setup(): Failed to open pcm device (default): No such file or directory
every other output works good. When Iam booting UBUNTU (dapper) I cant here that drums in background when Iam logging in, just beep.
I've tried compile alsa using this:
