My MIDI sound is not working with my i815 soundchip and SuSe 8.0. I have downloaded the upgrade and configurated it with alsaconf, but it's not working more, the driver is the correct one, the snd-intel18x0.o. Only the PCM sound is OK, timidity is working fine. With Mozilla, it's strange: if the link is a direct link to a MIDI file, it's working, but if the MIDI file is linked with an embed tag in the code of the page, all i get is a little comment at the bottom "running helper..." and no sound at all.
If i try with configuration, son, MIDI in the kdm menu, i get at i have no MIDI port. In the config menu, sound, mixing console is not working at all. Kmidi is working but i can see the leds taht go up and down, but i hear nothing. With kmid, it's worse, i get only a crash with signal 11 from it or kdm.
The sound part of the module.conf is as follow:
# Aliases for OSS # alias sound off # alias midi off
# OSS/Free setup alias sound-services-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
# uniq.virtual:Sound card
# # --- BEGIN: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. --- # --- ALSACONF verion 0.9.0 --- alias char-major-116 snd alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0 alias char-major-14 soundcore alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0 alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss options snd snd_major=116 snd_cards_limit=1 snd_device_mode=0666 options snd-intel8x0 snd_index=0 # --- END: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
Can somebody help me with to fix this problem? I'm sure at it must be a possibility to have the seuquencer working. I have proved with timidity as server, but i don't now how i must configure the MIDI ports to have them to work, all i get is a message like what timidity was working and att it was 2 Midi ports, but back in configuration, sound, midi, nothing is here..
Thanks Dominique Michel
Well, i have done some experiment. If i try to run kmid as root from a terminal, i get the interface but nothing else. just a few messages as follow: DCOPServer up and running. Each time i click to play come: Player :: There are no midi ports ! And when i quit the program: FOO:/home/dom/Desktop # kdeinit: Fatal IO error: client killed kdeinit: sending SIGHUP to children. kdeinit: sending SIGTERM to children. kdeinit: Exit. Mutex destroy failure: Périphérique ou ressource occupé sh: dcopserver_shutdown: command not found
I have take a look with ls and i get lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 jun 21 23:07 /dev/dsp -> /dev/dsp0 crw------- 1 dom users 14, 3 jun 21 23:07 /dev/dsp0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 jun 21 23:07 /dev/audio -> /dev/audio0 crw------- 1 dom users 14, 4 jun 21 23:07 /dev/audio0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 jun 21 23:07 /dev/midi -> /dev/midi0 crw------- 1 dom users 14, 2 jun 21 23:07 /dev/midi0
I'm very tired with this problem and i need my sleep. Have anyone a suggestion or a clue to what i must prove to do?
