If the proper ALSA driver is loaded, the directory /proc/asound should
be populated. Here's what mine looks like:

Open the xine setup window, click on the "audio" tab and scroll to the
item labelled "audio driver to use".

It should mostly work. When I upgraded to kernel 2.6 earlier in the

ALSA module. Putting the offending OSS module name in
/etc/hotplug/blacklist allowed the ALSA module to finally load.
