Midi Keyboard in Breezy


I'm trying to use my midi keyboard in ZynAddSubFX (a thoughly awsome program), but I've yet to get any response with the actual midi keyboard. I can play it with the on screen keyboard, but that's only fun for a little bit. (I've also tried RoseGarden, Beast, Muse, and anything else I could apt-get. Same result.)

I've tried the HOWTO's around here and got my computer to play midi files, which is nice, but not what I need. In /dev, I have sequencer and sequencer2, both of which claim to be unavailable:

Code:
# tail -f /dev/sequencer
tail: error reading `/dev/sequencer': Resource temporarily unavailable
tail: tail.c:836: recheck: Assertion `valid_file_spec (f)' failed.
Aborted
The sound card supports midi stuff, I think. It's a SB Live! something-or-other. An lspci follows:
