Looks like you're trying to use a plain kernel sound module as ALSA module.
They're not compatible, even if the module names are similar.
ALSA sound modules were not integrated in the kernel package on Suse 8.0
but needs to be updated separately. I don't remember the package name
for ALSA kernel modules since I stopped using ALSA after my first
kernel update :-)
