Angry usb audio : oss work but not alsa !(debian 2.6)

Hi there, everything was fine before i installed kde 3.3
now i cant get sound to work except with xmms so i guess the problem comes from ALSA. I tried to set preferences in my different video players (xine, totem and the one included in KDE wich i cant remember name) so that OSS is used instead of ALSA but there is no such option.

i tried to remove ALSA, hoping that OSS would then be used but that didnt work, as i expected.

is there a simple way to disable ALSA and use OSS or should i try to make my musepocket USB audio "card" work (can u call a card an external device wich is, moreover, round ?? ) with ALSA ?

i will provide my conf files if needded but since the devices work fine with OSS i guess there is no module related problems ...

thanks a lot
