Hi Mitko, thanks for your answer.

I tested it a few hours ago because I thought the same way. But I don't
have esd, arts, jack or sth like this running on my box..

Done but same problem. Does this overrun the preferences of ScummVM?

Already done.

Yes, any other application can use ALSA without any problems.

Today I found these notifications with dmesg:
ALSA
/var/tmp/portage/alsa-driver-1.0.8/work/alsa-driver-1.0.8/alsa-kernel/pci/ac97/ac97_codec.c:1907:
AC'97 1 does not respond - RESET
ALSA
/var/tmp/portage/alsa-driver-1.0.8/work/alsa-driver-1.0.8/alsa-kernel/pci/ac97/ac97_codec.c:1916:
AC'97 1 access is not valid [0x0], removing mixer.
ALSA
/var/tmp/portage/alsa-driver-1.0.8/work/alsa-driver-1.0.8/alsa-kernel/pci/trident/trident_main.c:2991:
SI7018: the secondary codec - invalid access

I had them, too, while the drivers where compiled into the kernel.
Any ideas?

Last but not least I found many people in the internet having many
different (unusual) problems with AC97. So maybe there's a problem with
the driver of it. Or maybe I have to do a little tuning? I already saw
some pages for the ~/.asoundrc. Maybe a problem concerning the buffer?

Thanks for your help!
Sören
