I am hoping anyone who reads this thread can give me a hand. I revently have downloaded the playmidi from the CVS source tree. I compiled it with option #1 (External midi synth, Ensoniq Soundscape, TB Maui, waveblaster cards) and it complained with the following error:
grep: /dev/sndstat: No such device
I read the comp.os.linux.misc and found some responses to the posts saying that "/dev/sndstat" has been depricated and replaced with "/proc/asound/sndstat". Then, I edited the "Configure" file and replaced "/dev/sndstat" with "/proc/asound/sndstat". I recompiled the playmidi with option #1 successfully. However, when I tried to play any midi song with either playmidi or xplaymidi, they both played the midi song but I don't hear any sound/song coming out from the speakers. I have installed alsa-driver-0.5.10b (I could not get the latest alsa-driver running). Does this mean playmidi does not support via686a sound chip? If so, what other software should I use to play midi files instead of playmidi?
It sounds like you have nothing connected to the external
midi port. When you choose external midi, it sends to the
external midi port.
