This is for all the people who added their users to the audio group, yet still can't play any sound through OSS. After browsing through the net, I found this: http://www.geocrawler.com/archives/3/12350/2002/1/0/7693936/

Basically, since the TV tuner card drivers load before alsa, they take up alsa's mixer's slot. Thus, when the snd-oss-pcm module (the oss emu module of alsa) tries to load up, it can't load its own mixer module, and oss sound emulation fails.
