First thing to check would be that /etc/apt/sources.list is indeed
pointing to the smp repository (I assume it is as you have done this in
the past, but it is worth checking). 

You could also see what is in the cache of the apt system (after doing
an "apt-get update"):

# apt-cache pkgnames alsa-driver

This should show an entry for the smp driver...
