I managed to repeat the problem, apparently Rosegarden is not happy at
all when started without the alsa sequencer loaded.

You can enable the alsasound startup script so that it loads the
sequencer kernel module at startup:
(as root)
  /sbin/chkconfig alsasound on
And you can start it manually:
  /etc/rc.d/init.d/alsasound start
(or reboot)

Rosegarden should start fine once snd-seq is loaded (at least it did
