No sound with MIDI files in kmid - Fedora Core 4

Hi all,

I've searched on how to get this to work, but so far no dice.
timidity plays MIDI files fine, but I don't like the no GUI option of it. If push comes to shove I'll download the source of it and compile it with ncurses or something so I can get a GUI...

kmid will play files but I get no sound. Sounds works for every other file format, mp3 ogg, wav, wma, etc. so that's not the issue.

I followed along this thread

Sound card is a SBLive! using the emu101k driver. System is FC4.
