Exclamation /dev/sequencer not found.


I have recently been trying to use KMid, but I have run into a problem. KMid uses a device called sequencer. I've looked in my /dev folder where it said it was, but it isn't there. The commands "locate" and "which" also can't find it. I have a Sound Blaster compatable sound card and I was wondering where, or how I can fix this problem and get sequencer installed and working. How would I do this

I'm sure you've thought of this yourself, but did you run locate as root?

all the necessary modules for your sound card may not be getting loaded.
is it alsa or the oss modules loaded from the kernel.

I suppose you need more info then. I am running an OSS Sound System, and am using an Ensoniq sound card. Do you need anymore info?

sorry. i typed that cat /proc/pci wrong. but i don't need it.
there's no sequencer module loaded.
i don't know the name of the oss sequencer, but the also one is snd-seq.o
you can try a modprobe snd-seq and see if that does it.
it might be modprobe sequencer
when you modprobe, leave the .o off the end

you can also
find /lib -name "*seq*" -print
and that will list any modules with seq in the name.
if your modules.conf is set up right, and you load the main one, the
others will get loaded with it.

Ok that actually sounds like a good idea. I'll go try to find it. What a sec... when I used locate sequencer... it brought up something like "a.sequencer.h" but I was positive that wasn't it, but maybe it is...

By the way, what does Mod Probe actually do?

maybe you got part of it, but not all of what you needed, and kmid
couldn't handle it.
modprobe loads kernel modules.
you can try modprobe with with all of those files with seq in the name.
you don't have to use the pathname either, just the file without the .o

you can do lsmod again to see what if anything stayed loaded.

these modules will not be loaded after you reboot either.

That explains why KMid is working again. I bet those are ALSA modules, but I'm using OSS. I have no idea how to fix this.

maybe you can use the mandrake sound setup tool to use a different
sound driver.
