Midi module problem

After compiling a new kernel everything has gone well except the midi support for my SB 16 PNP.   The module for it(Opl3 io=0*388)is loading at start up without errors, so too is the other modules associated with the SB.   However, when I test the SB with 'sndconfig' the sound test is fine, but the midi test produces the following:

modprobe error

lib/modules/kernel/misc/opl3.o:init-module device or resource busy

ditto    insmod

ditto    failed

ditto    insmod midi failed

Any ideas what might be happening?

Try playing a midi file with 'playmidi' - it looks that sndconfig (which I find to be a pretty useless tool) is trying to load a wrong module when you already have loaded.  If playmidi works, you're OK, and don't worry about sndconfig (always remember, not all programs work right!)

You were right - forget sndconfig.    Worked fine once I had tracked some midi files down.
