I have the same trouble of here: http://www.stepmania.com/forums/general-questions/show/2208 with StepMania5.0-git-66edc2d on Debian 8.2 x86_64.
I tried running StepMania with pasuspender, with SoundDevice=plughw:0,3, SoundDrivers=alsa-sw on ~/stepmania5.0/Save/Preferences.ini and I get this output running the game:
ALSA: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version k3.16.0-4-amd64.
ALSA Driver: 0: HDA Intel PCH [PCH], device 0: ALC269VC Analog [ALC269VC Analog], 1/1 subdevices avail
ALSA Driver: 0: HDA Intel PCH [PCH], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0], 1/1 subdevices avail
ALSA: dsnd_pcm_hw_params_set_access: Invalid argument
Couldn't load driver ALSA-sw: SetHWParams failed
Couldn't load driver OSS: RageSoundDriver_OSS: Couldn't open /dev/dsp: No such file or directory
Sound driver: Null
Lights driver: SystemMessage
Lights driver: Export
I figured out that it seems it's not getting the Preferences.ini file when I see that the Sound driver is set to null.
