This is a known issue with the current version of the module-init-tools 
package. You need to downgrade to the last known good version - I'm 
using 3.0-r2. The issue is with the one of the oss modules which fails 
to load so you don't get your oss /dev nodes set up correctly.
There was a thread on the gentoo forums about it which is how I found 
out about it :-)
