You are probably missing "/etc/asound.conf" file. There is "alsaconf"
tool that (I think) generates it automatically, but you can simply
create it by hand. Try putting this in it:

Not necessarily, you can build everything directly into kernel. Just do
not forget to include the OSS API emulation options (not the real OSS),
as many applications still use it.
