Try using devfs rules too.

Aucun fichier ou répertoire de ce type
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:868:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
alsa-init: playback open error: Aucun fichier ou répertoire de ce type

doesn't bring me sound or a mixer.
Strangely, I've a mixer in the Gnome Panel.
Thx you for your help (and thank you Luis M too)
