SoundBlaster Live

I am having similar problems....  I don't even need the debugmsg line to see
the problem...

I get an error from the midi driver about 'invalid ioctl for midi info'.  As
far as I can tell by
looking at the code for both Wine and the kernel sound driver, the sound
driver does not provide any ioctl support for the /dev/sequencer device, and
that is the call that is failing.

Does anyone have any suggestions?  Will using the ALSA driver with the OSS
compatability layer help?
