Question ALSA problem with slackware

I'm having problems installing ALSA with my SB Live card, and although I have searched the net I haven't found any way to solve it. I would appreciate any help I can get.

The first part of the installations seems to work fine. I run:
./configure --with-moddir=/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/driver/sound/ --with-sequencer=yes --with-oss=yes --with-cards=emu10k1
and make && make install without any problems for driver/oss/lib/util

but when I run modprobe snd-emu10k1 I get the following error:
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/driver/sound/snd-emu10k1.o: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/driver/sound/snd-emu10k1.o: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/driver/sound/snd-emu10k1.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/driver/sound/snd-emu10k1.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/driver/sound/snd-emu10k1.o: insmod snd-emu10k1 failed

The soundcard is working with other apps (eg. xmms), so there has to be something else.

My /proc/modules look like this:
snd-seq-oss 26144 0 (unused)
snd-seq-midi-event 2984 0 [snd-seq-oss]
snd-seq 33616 2 [snd-seq-oss snd-seq-midi-event]
snd-seq-device 3936 0 [snd-seq-oss snd-seq]
snd-pcm-oss 37828 0 (unused)
snd-pcm 55520 0 [snd-pcm-oss]
snd-timer 13352 0 [snd-seq snd-pcm]
snd-page-alloc 4652 0 [snd-pcm]
snd-mixer-oss 12152 0 [snd-pcm-oss]
snd 27652 0 [snd-seq-oss snd-seq-midi-event snd-seq snd-seq-device snd-pcm-oss snd-pcm snd-timer snd-mixer-oss]
parport_pc 14724 1 (autoclean)
lp 6752 0 (autoclean)
parport 23264 1 (autoclean) [parport_pc lp]
pcmcia_core 38112 0
ide-scsi 8048 0
tulip 41248 1
emu10k1 61288 1
ac97_codec 9512 0 [emu10k1]
soundcore 3332 6 [snd emu10k1]

what is a boy to do?

That because it was already loaded, the kernel driver looks liek it was.

emu10k1 = kernel
snd-emu10k1 = alsa

thats what it looks like to me, but could be wrong. But if you had sound then something was loaded up. You should of had sound on boot with slack 9 and hotplug
