You compiled both OSS and ALSA modules, make sure you don't load them at
the same time (OSS uses a module named dmasound, ALSA uses modules named
snd-*). When you use ALSA (recommended nowadays) you want to load
snd-pcm-oss & snd-mixer-oss for OSS-emulation, this way ALSA can be used
with applications that doesn't support ALSA natively.

Make sure you have selected the right output plugin for xmms,
for beep-media-player the mentioned OSS-emulation should work.
