Great, as a tester it is your job to tell him what is/may be wrong (not
the other way around), so please figure it out.

Did you actually go to pains to be absolutely sure what you have is what
the packages will create in a clean install situation?  Have you
manipulated the module insertion manually and verified the sound system
itself functions?  I have not been using the s-c-sc created setup, so I
also will look into this...

Pete Zaitcev:
My Audigy xGamer (snd_emu10k1) is currently functioning well.  Although
I believe this to be slightly overkill (and it is not s-c-sc created)
this does work:

alias snd-card-0 snd_emu10k1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

install snd-card-0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-card-0 && \
{ /sbin/modprobe snd_emu10k1 && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore 0 > /dev/null\
2>&1 || :; }

remove snd-card-0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 > /dev/null 2>&1\
|| :; }; /sbin/modprobe -r snd_emu10k1 && /sbin/modprobe -r\
--ignore-remove snd-card-0

Any comment as to how this is the improper method (or laughable) are
