I had the same problem a few weeks ago (after a possibly unrelated
security update for kernel 2.6.8 on sarge).  After a helpful remark in
debian-user this solved it for me:

sudo modprobe snd_seq_oss
sudo modprobe snd_pcm_oss
sudo modprobe snd_mixer_oss

Of those three, you only miss snd_seq_oss.  So a 

sudo modprobe snd_seq_oss

/might/ do the trick.

I just added these lines:

# Sound
snd_seq_oss
snd_pcm_oss
snd_mixer_oss

to my /etc/modules, which should help after the next reboot; haven't
tried it yet.
