Why did you post this as a reply to a message with the subject "Broadcom
BCM57xx NIC (tg3)"? Please don't hijack message threads. 

To answer your question, the implementation of KDE's sound server (aRts)
does not like ALSA's OSS compatibility layer (probably it makes unsafe
assumptions about low-level driver behaviour), but when choosing an audio
device, it takes OSS even when native ALSA is available.  For further
