Does Mandrake make it simple enough to install all the
requirements for building the nightly tar balls? If
yes, then maybe go that route. This will enable you to
use alsa sequencer for the MIDI port.

Otherwise...I just can't recall how I fixed this exact
error in the past. I think HW:0 is simply the first
specified card in the modules.conf file. Wait a

Toggle button pix maps...How old is this package that
you're attempting to install? My sense is that you're
attempting to install something that is pretty old. 

I just do the CVS thing and once the requirements are
met it's very easy to keep up with the numerous fixes
and updates.
