I'm experiencing the following problems with ALSA:

1. MIDI playback has no sound. PCM audio works though. aplaymidi also appears to "play" through the whole file but no audio is produced. I'm able to get the following port listing with aplaymidi -l :

64:0 SiS SI7018 MIDI - Rawmidi 0 SiS SI7018 MIDI
65:0 SiS 7018 SiS 7018 port 0
65:1 SiS 7018 SiS 7018 port 1
65:2 SiS 7018 SiS 7018 port 2
65:3 SiS 7018 SiS 7018 port 3

I've tested on all ports with the same result. Likewise with other players like XMMS with the timidity plugin and kmid as well as on an SBAWE64 Gold card.

2. SDL apps crash when I set SDL_AUDIODRIVER to "alsa". Also happens on both the SIS7018 and AWE6. What is the correct way to get SDL to use the alsa driver?
