I have a maestro-3i soundcard in a Dell latitude laptop. I tried removing the ac97_codec module, but it was busy; I reloaded anyway with modprobe.
Yes, I booted with "alsa" which reported "alsa(autodetect)". I also loaded the oss emulator, and at least xmms works now (it didn't previously). I'm getting a lot of alsa snd-function lib errors when running flash 9, because it can't find the files or directiory.
alsaconf reports it can't find the card database.
There's probably a way to set this up correctly, but I'll have to put it on back burner until I have time to do more research.
Edit: It appears the ESS driver is problematic (such as allowing only one stream), although there is a maestro3 alsa driver. Maybe it's not in the alsa4 extension?
edit2: can't find any of the snd modules: ie, modprobe snd-card-maestro3, snd-mixer-oss, snd-seq-oss, etc.)
"modinfo soundcore" correctly lists core sound module.
