$ alsaconf
$ update-modules
$ /etc/init.d/alsa restart

alsaconf seems to fail quite often those days. in this case, you will have to 
edit manually the file /etc/alsa/modutils/0.9. Something like this should 
do :

# This file was automatically generated by alsa-base's debconf stuff

alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore

options snd major=116 cards_limit=4

alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

alias snd-card-0 snd-ens1370

alias snd-slot-0 snd-card-0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-slot-0
