You may perhaps try an other way :
It works with mandriva 2010.2 It may work with Mageia
I can't verify it for now ... my computer for production use is still
working with mandriva because of missing rpms in Mageia (aac encoding
and my experimental computer doesn't have a soundblaster card !

I didn't use the file  /etc/modprobe.d/sound

but two files :

I adapted them for you :

/etc/modprobe.preload file (with something for realtime kernel that you
can comment with a # if you don't use a real time kernel)
# /etc/modprobe.preload: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file should contain the names of kernel modules that are
# to be loaded at boot time, one per line.  Comments begin with
# a `#', and everything on the line after them are ignored.
# this file is for module-init-tools (kernel 2.5 and above) ONLY
# for old kernel use /etc/modules

realtime mlock=1 gid=81


/etc/modprobe.conf file : (add these lines if they don't exist, and just
modify the path to your soundfont file)
alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
alias sound-slot-0 snd_emu10k1
options snd-emu10k1 index=0
remove snd_emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --first-time -r --ignore-remove
install snd_emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd_emu10k1
install snd-emu10k1-synth /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install
snd-emu10k1-synth;/usr/bin/asfxload /etc/midi/8MBGMSCustom.sf2;

alias snd-card-1 snd_via82xx
alias sound-slot-1 snd_via82xx
options snd-via82xx index=1

Hope this will help !
