Well without some explanation of "not working" I'm not sure there's much anyone can do. In what way is it not working? Are you getting any errors or just no audio? Have you run an audio app from the terminal to see what errors you get? Does speaker-test produce audio? When you say OSS works, are you talking about OSSv4 or the oss emulation layer from ALSA? What alsa modules do you have loaded?
Well something is really screwed up. You have the alsa drivers for two different sound cards loaded, one of which we know is installed on your system, yet all the alsa utilities we've tried can't see a single card. Do you have any OSSv4 modules loaded? What's the output of 'lsmod | grep oss'?
It should work with any distribution. It's been a while since I used my old Yamaha soundcard, though and I'm not even sure if I still have it. The lead alsa developer works at RedHat. You could also report the bug directly to alsa, using their bugtracker or mailing lists: http://alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Main_Page
