From the ALSA wiki
Check that the ALSA drivers are compiled as modules
- Anything that mentions sound in the kernel config, even if it is not directly to do with ALSA, set its option to M if you can.If you compile your own kernel: when you configure the kernel, make sure you see M (for module) and not * (compiled into the kernel).
- could you tell which file is concerned by the kernel configuration or refer to some document on this topic ?
