That shouldn't be required unless snd_mixer_oss was not loaded before
and amixer just triggered its loading somehow (see quoted README for
details). Or maybe it's some other low-level module. You can compare the
module lists before and after running that command (visible with "lsmod"
command or in /proc/modules).
