Earlier today, I had midi working, but since I upgraded the kernel today, it doesn't work. I have timidity installed.
Here's the output from running kmid from a console:
ALSA lib seq_hw.c:455:(snd_seq_hw_open) open /dev/snd/seq failed: No such file or directory handle==0 ALSA lib seq_hw.c:455:(snd_seq_hw_open) open /dev/snd/seq failed: No such file or directory handle==0 zsh: suspended kmid /usr/share/games/kobo-deluxe/sfx/ballad1.mid
I also tried to run timidity -iA as suggested in this thread: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=16243
with this output:
Requested buffer size 32768, fragment size 8192 ALSA pcm 'default' set buffer size 60208, period size 3760 bytes TiMidity starting in ALSA server mode ALSA lib seq_hw.c:455:(snd_seq_hw_open) open /dev/snd/seq failed: No such file or directory error in snd_seq_open
I did have problems with midi before, but I do remember hearing sounds once, and earlier today, I played kobo deluxe which has a midi soundtrack, and I definitely heard sounds...
Any suggestions? I saw someone in an earlier thread having problems with alsa after some kernel upgrade...?[/quote]
Did you also update udev when you updated your kernel? What kernel version did you update from/to?
From the second-latest to the latest (188.8.131.52, is it?), and, yes, I have a fresh udev. I keep my system clean and up to date :-)
Check if snd-seq is loaded.If not modprobe snd-seq.You could also add that module to rc.conf to have it loaded everytime you boot .
