My soundcar is already configured and running properly, kmid complains 
about /dev/sequencer being used by another app ...
I checked on dev but there's no /dev/sequencer at all..
Any hints on how to configure my sound card to create it?

As a side effect of that, Fretsonfire can't play the mid songs .. so it plays 
the ogg but the mids are missing == unplayable :(

I found this:

# cd /dev
# sh MAKEDEV snd0

on and gave it a shot 
just in case but it didn't work ...

Any hint will be greatly aprecciated

Thanks in advanced
