I have no clue about that since I don't use the pre-compiled kernels.
But you can check by typing "lsmod".  If they're compiled as modules
you'll see something like this:

snd_hda_codec_nvhdmi     9750  1
snd_hda_intel          14764  2
snd_hda_codec          48881  2 snd_hda_codec_nvhdmi,snd_hda_intel
snd_hwdep               3566  1 snd_hda_codec
snd_pcm                44172  3 snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec
snd_timer              11991  1 snd_pcm
snd                    28664  9
snd_hda_codec_nvhdmi,snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec,snd_hwdep,snd_pcm,snd_timer
soundcore                548  1 snd
snd_page_alloc          4669  2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm

Ok, I found that checking the config file of the pre-compiled kernel and saw that:

$ grep -i sound /boot/config-$(uname -r)
CONFIG_SOUND=m
CONFIG_SOUND_OSS_CORE=y
# CONFIG_SOUND_OSS_CORE_PRECLAIM is not set
# CONFIG_SOUND_PRIME is not set

With your suggestion, I found a similar (obviously not equal) output for lsmod | grep snd

dpkg -P <package name> will uninstall a package but you can leave
alsa-base, alsa-utils, etc.  All you need from the alsa snapshot is
the driver.

I already know how to remove a package :P, I only want to know if I need to remove alsa-related packages or if I can leave them. Thanks for your answer, I'll begin now with your instructions :)
