For the record, alsa-oss is a 100% userspace solution that doesn't
require anything special in the kernel. aoss is just a small wrapper
script that adds libaoss.so to LD_PRELOAD, which converts ioctls and
other file operations on /dev/dsp to libasound calls. Thus, it behaves
like any other ALSA app instead of blocking the PCM device by
opening /dev/dsp directly.

That said, I'm glad things are working for you now. :)
