Hi Chun,

First: yes, ALSA wants to be modules. Always. You can either compile the 
built-in ALSA as modules, or emerge the alsa-driver package.

Second: you need to tell the realtime module who gets to use it. The 
line "modprobe realtime any=1" allows any user to gain realtime 
privileges, or you can specify a UID or GID [user/group ID]. Or add the 
"any=1", "GID=n" or "UID=n" to your /etc/moudles.autoload.d/kernel-2.6

good luck,
