-alsadev <n> 
specifies the sound card to use.

-alsa uses the first sound device on first sound card (known hw:0,0) by
default so you don't need the -alsadev option at all.   

"-alsadev" is not enough and will get you a segfault. 
-alsadev hw:0,0 (which is the same as not using this option at all) or
-alsadev 1 (for the first device on the first sound card same as default) 
-alsadev 2 (for the first device of the second sound card) 
and so on...

For more exotic cases use -alsadev ha:<c>,<d> 

I suggest you try the alsa 0.9.0 it works great.

Take care,
