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)

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?
