If there's no MIDI, this isn't an AS issue. Make sure your kernel or
modules are configured and compiled right. Try using another program or
something. If you're using playmidi, try doing playmidi -f instead of just
Sounds, however, are a different story. You need to start the Audio
module and ensure that it is configured to actually do something. Modules
are generally started in your autoexec, or, if you like, from the
startmenu, though if you want it to be running all the time, this is an
inconvenience. The audio module is configured in ~/G/L/A/audio.
