That indicates that ALSA's OSS layer works (those are loaded via an
include-file in /etc/modprobe.conf), but it doesn't tell anything about
whether the native ALSA driver (snd_ens1371) works. Make sure, the
snd_ens1371 kernel modules is loaded actually (look at output of "lsmod").
Verify whether the mixer channels in alsamixer are not set to "mute" (MM)
anymore. Try something else than those Sound Events tests, because they
depend on the EsounD sound server. I'm not informed about any esd specific
issues in FC 1.90. Can you play an .ogg file with Rhythmbox or XMMS?
