Midi not working, possibly output device problem


The midi on my Slackware 9.1 machine is not working. The sound works fine for xmms and such. I dont use artsd or any sound server.

I open kmidi to play a midi file and it says output device error, i checked the error and it needs artsd to play. I turned on artsd and the sound quality is horrible (As i have always found with artsd). So i dont like that oen bit.

I tried Kmid and it gave me an error saying it couldnt open the sequencer. I checked the error and it was actually that it couldnt open /dev/snd/seq so i changed the permissions on that, and now when i run kmid it crashes.

Timidity just wont run, and i havent found out why yet. There is no error on the command-line or anything.

I downloaded a simple midi player called "midi". It says that /dev/sequencer doesnt exist. Which an "ls -l" shows me: "rw-rw-rw- 1 root sys 14, 1 Aug 29 03:47 /dev/sequencer" which should mean it exists and can output sound.

So any ideas to solve this problem?
