[root at davehost dave]# modprobe -v snd-pcm-oss
insmod /lib/modules/
insmod /lib/modules/
[root at davehost dave]# 

[root at davehost core]# pwd
[root at davehost core]# ls
oss  snd-hrtimer.ko  snd.ko             snd-pcm.ko      snd-timer.ko
seq  snd-hwdep.ko    snd-page-alloc.ko  snd-rawmidi.ko
[root at davehost core]# 

dist-oss.conf has the module load line commented out,


[root at davehost modprobe.d]# cat dist-alsa.conf
# ALSA Sound Support
# We want to ensure that snd-seq is always loaded for those who want to use
# the sequencer interface, but we can't do this automatically through udev
# at the we have this rule (just for the moment).
# Remove the following line if you don't want the sequencer.

install snd-pcm /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-pcm && /sbin/modprobe snd-
