Thank you very much, Andreas. Yes, that's all it takes to replace OSS with
alsa. Just for the archive, here are all that I did:
$ lsmod | grep _audio
via82cxxx_audio 17404 0
$ grep -i via /etc/modules || echo no
$ grep sound-slot /etc/modutils/* || echo no
debfoster alsa-oss alsa-base alsa-utils alsa-modules-2.4-k7
PS. I have discover1, in this case, running alsaconf will give me:
No supported PnP or PCI card found.
Thanks again Andreas!
