according to your modules, you are using the oss sound drivers, and not the 
alsa ones. Thus you won't have a /proc/asound directory. Protux cannot use oss 
(which is already deprecated in the newest Linux kernels). You'll have to 
install and use the alsa drivers ( Alsa has an oss 
compatibility layer, so your applications which need oss will still run.

hope that helps
