Ok, here's the deal.

If I put my sound modules in modules.autoload, the modules are loaded and the /dev entries are created properly. The mixer settings however are not loaded.

If I use the alsasound script in my init with the modules.autoload, the alsasound refuses to run as the modules are already loaded and /proc/asound exists.

If I use the alsasound script without the modules.autoload entries, the modules are loaded and the mixer settings are loaded, but the /dev entries aren't created.

Yes I am using devfs.

Help.

Don't load your sound modules in /etc/modules.autoload AND through /etc/init.d/alsasound. Choose one method.
Do you load snd-pcm-oss and snd-mixer-oss in modues.autoload? You should...

What option creates the snd-pcm-oss and mixer-oss files? I had the pcm at one time, but it disappeared and I've not been able to get it back.

Interesting... I had never done that and had the file. Weird.

*sigh* Thank you, Captain Obvious... *rolls eyes*

The issue here is not whether to try to load the same modules twice! An untrained monkey could figure that out. The problem is, for sound to work correctly, the /dev entries must be created and the mixer settings must be properly handled. However, each of these methods neglects one.

Hmm, did you edit /etc/devfsd.conf as described in this document?

Fixed it. The thing I needed to do, was change in /etc/modules.d/alsa,

snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
snd-card-1 snd-emu10k1
...
snd-card-7 snd-emu10k1

to

snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
snd-card-1 snd-emu10k1-synth
snd-card-2 snd-pcm-oss # creates the /dev entries
snd-card-3 snd-emu10k1
snd-card-4 snd-emu10k1
...
snd-card-7 snd-emu10k1
