Default how to get dev/dsp and oss modules back


I have some older programs that require OSS and /dev/dsp I have tried the
pulseaudio trick with padsp but some work and some don't. I have also
edited the
/etc/modprobe/dist-oss-conf and uncommented the line that says

install snd-pcm /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-pcm && /sbin/modprobe
snd-pcm-oss && /sbin/modprobe snd-seq-device && /sbin/modprobe snd-seq-oss

This was supposed to work at least from what I have read to get the modules
back but unfortunately it has not. I have no /dev/dsp at all or any oss
modules when doing
a lsmod. As you can see here

snd_emu10k1_synth 4968 0
snd_emux_synth 30789 1 snd_emu10k1_synth
snd_seq_virmidi 4176 1 snd_emux_synth
snd_seq_midi_event 5815 1 snd_seq_virmidi
snd_seq_midi_emul 5187 1 snd_emux_synth

I have tried it with both pulseaudio installed and pulseaudio not installed
and no go either way.

So my question is this, have the OSS modules and support been removed from
the kernel like many other distros have done? If so I will have to rebuild
the kernel to get this functionality back which really is no big deal, but
was hoping someone would know something I do not, thanks in advance.
