[svlug] Sound is broken

For some reason, all of a sudden, sound stopped working on my desktop
machine. I suspect that it is something blatantly simple.

One clue is in /var/log/messages:

messages:May  4 01:12:21 big4est modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-0-3
messages:May  4 02:03:19 big4est modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-0-3
messages.1:May  4 01:04:15 big4est modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-0-3

/etc/modules.conf looks like:

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias eth0 tulip
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias scsi_hostadapter sym53c8xx
alias sound-slot-0 emu10k1
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

from /proc/pci:

  Bus  0, device   8, function  0:
    Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10000 (rev 7).
      IRQ 9.

I've found something worse than oldies station that play the music I used to
listen to. Oldies stations that play the "new" music I used to complain about.
