See if the snd-seq module is loaded:
  /sbin/lsmod|grep snd-seq
if not you can load it manually (ie: "/sbin/modprobe snd-seq") and/or
activate the alsasound script so that it is loaded automatically on
  /sbin/chkconfig alsasound on

This will be the default on the next release of the alsa-driver package
(1.0.9-rc2, coming soon).
