ALSA lib ctl_oss.c Cannot open device /dev/mixer

It happen recently on my debian workstation

ALSA lib ctl_oss.c:398 (_snd_ctl_oss_open) Cannot open device /dev/mixer
Cannot open mixer: No such file or directory

When you try to run alsamixer. The reason is the the module snd-pcm-oss not loaded. To fix

#modprobe snd-pcm-oss
