i have just managed run alsaconf(after much touble) and now, i can run no mixer, they all report me an error, alsamixer, wmmixer... As i have gentoo, i have emerged a lot of mixers. But non of them is willing to work. this is the error that is reported when i run alsaconf:

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory

andthis is when i run wmmixer:

Opening Mixer failed.
wmmixer error: Unable to open mixer device: No such file or directory
