A few weeks ago I istalled planetccrma at home (FEDORA).  I would like to use 
midi, but things don't work. Sound form Cd or wav works fine, also the 

I've tried Rosegarden, Ams and some "Jack" applications, nothing works.

1. Redhat-config-souncard:

	mODEL :YMF-740C [DS-1L Audio Controller]
	Modue: ymfpci

	Testsound ok, but I get a message:
	The ymfpci driver could not be loaded.  This soundcard may not be compatible 							
with Red Hat Linux.


2.	Jack says: 	

	Couldn't open hw:0 for 32bit samples trying 24bit instead
	Couldn't open hw:0 for 24bit samples trying 16bit instead
	ALSA: cannot set number of periods to 2 for capture
	ALSA: cannot configure capture channel
	cannot load driver module alsa
	22:52:10.250 JACK was stopped successfully.
	22:52:12.254 Could not connect to JACK server as client.

3.	ams says:

	You appear to be using the ALSA software "plug" layer, probably
	a result of using the "default" ALSA device. This is less
	efficient than it could be. Consider using a ~/.asoundrc file
	to define a hardware audio device rather than using the plug layer.
	Alsa_driver: can't set number of periods to 2.
	Alsa_driver: can't set playback hardware parameters.
	Can't connect to ALSA

The last two weeks I googled a lot but didn't find anything that could help 

	Please help.
