I was getting that error message. Ulimately I'm not convinced I'd actually
installed the (correct) ALSA modules. But since you *can* play music as
root your problem might be somewhat easier to solve.

some reason make-kpkg found an old version of the pcmcia source and used
out-dated modules. It took me SEVERAL tries to get everything in the right
order. I was also configuring for my graphics card (nvidia) for a total
of: nvidia, pcmcia and alsa as seperate modules. Plus all the things that
are in my kernel as modules (i.e. soundcore).
Instead of just relying on --append-to-version I actually (re)moved
the /lib/modules/<kernel> directory and then did modules_install again.
(Let me know if you want that in a non-short hand version.)
