    Slackware 8.1 & sound

    Does anyone know how to activate midi support on a slack 8.1 (sb-live)
    machine ? My sound works great such as mp3 players and system sounds, but I cannot play midi files ... my intentions are to use sequencing programs and midi-equipment, so I need to get it to work but I am not sure how ...
    checked the ALSA (http://www.alsa-project.org/) page but that doesn't help me cause I know to little about it to know what I am supposed to do

    Anyone have a clue on how to do it ?

    thanks in advance ..

    KenHan,

    I've never tried to get midi to work because I don't believe I have any midi files. If you could pass me one over perhaps I could see if I have it working on my machine or not. If not I'll see about helping you get this working together.

    The best way I've found is to download, compile and install TiMidity++ and it's intrument files. It's a bit of a hassle, but once it is installed and working, you can play MIDI files, no problem.
