Does someone know how to set up midi, I tried to set it up with a AD1985 onboard card
but also with a AudioPCI128 , with or without alsa on boot it is not possible to play midi
files, not with playmidi or xmms, I tried on a harddisk install and tried it with and without
alsaconfig. I have sound and can use aplications like audacity but only when I don't activate
soundsystem in the configurationcenter when I do that and start Audacity it returns with
an host error can't initialise i/o layer no recording or playback options, same with Hydrogen.
The system sound is working then, but the test midi button remains silence.
I tried knoppix 3.3 and 3.4 and tried to set up alsa myself with kpackage but it refuses
to do things mainly I guess because off alsa-base but it seems it can't be removed without errors.
I tried to install applications like muse qsynth timidity xzynaddsubfx kmidi but none
off these will work properly.
I read almost all forums for a solution so because I can't find these I hope someone who
is been able to set up midi or a proper working alsa will post his results or suggestions.
The cards I tried AD1985 soundonboard and Ensoniq 5880 AudioPCI seems to be supported
ordening to the ALSA SOUND MATRIX, so my question is how can set this up?
