If you can use OSS as well as ALSA, you are using the ALSA drivers,
optionally with OSS emulation. Theoretically, the ALSA output is the
better choice in this case. The error above may relate to the
configuration in your ~/.asoundrc. Try changing it to give you direct
hardware access, instead of going through e.g. the dmix plugin.
