RE: Playing MIDI files
I've had similar problems playing midi files (SoundBlaster AWE64 PnP).
I can play .au and .wav files fine and I can use timidity to play a .mid
file but when I try running playmidi I get "No playback device set.
In /dev there is MAKEDEV file, if you sh ./MAKEDEV it will create all
the device files for you (I think)

Subject: Playing MIDI files
When I try to play MIDI files with `playmidi', I get the message
open /dev/sequencer: No such device
However, `ls -l /dev/sequencer' produces
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 0 Mar 28 16:29 /dev/sequencer
so I don't understand what's wrong. Can anyone enlighten me?
