You are right, seems that you have the OSS module still loaded
somewhere. You have to look for the OSS module (something like
"emu10k1") and then remove it with:

/sbin/rmmod "your_module_name"

After the module is successfully unloaded, you can start alsa or the
alsaconf program by,

/usr/sbin/alsaconf   or

/etc/rc.d/init.d/alsasound restart
