Does anybody know how to play MIDI files in Linux with i810_audio module?

Simply put I have googled around enormously for this and I still haven't figured out how to play MIDI files in Linux. I DO NOT have ALSA but I'm using the module i810_audio for sound.

Mine is an onboard sound on an A7N8X-E motherboard.

I would be glad if somebody has achieved this before.

I have a Dell laptop with an i810 integrated audio. To play midi I just start timidity with -iA -B2,8 switches and all the midi output is redirected to timidity. The -iA switch is for ALSA sequencer mode (I do use alsa), but there must be a way to start timidity as an OSS sequencer, too.

Just use "timidity filenamehere" to play midi files.

Download timidity here:

You need to use ./configure --enable-oss (I think)
