In my opinion: As all distributions just use more or less the same
ALSA and kernel, switching distributions will not make problems inside
these go away.

Missing alsaconf is bad, although hdspX or envy24control et all are
missing in Debian as well. That probably is because these are not part
of the three essential ALSA packages alsa-lib, alsa-utils and
alsa-modules and are only needed in special cases (you don't need
envy24control, I don't need hdsploader)
