[snipped the /proc/asound details]

And it was; thanks to Gunther Sohler who tipped me the right way I
installed the software I was missing (alsa-lib, alsa-driver and
alsa-tools plus the xmms-alsa plugin), unmuted the audio channels
by means of alsamixer (*the* problem - somehow the channels are
muted by default), set volume for what I use and now xine/xmms
play audio fine.

As a bonus I cleared my mind about a few differences between ALSA
and OSS :)

Sorry for the waste of bandwidth and thanks again,
