Description of problem:
playmidi says "open /dev/sequencer: No such device" even though
/dev/sequencer does exist and has permissions set to be readable and
writable. Also, realplay and cdp work fine (though sndconfig plays at
twice the speed, as someone else reported in bug #43030).
I'm running RedHat 7.1 on an IBM NetVista A60 with Analog Devices SoundMAX
Integrated Digital Audio, which sndconfig identifies as Intel
Corporation|82820 820 (Camino 2) AC'97 Audio".
Also, I have to run sndconfig again each time I reboot, or else realplay
says, "Cannot open the audio device. Another application may be using
it." Yet /etc/modules.conf remains as it was.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

The i810_audio (AC'97, etc) does not have a sequencer device. So playmidi
