Do you use ALSA like me?

Does this work?
 pmidi -p 65:0 file.mid

But not with
 kmid file.mid

I get:

"Sorry, this KMid version was compiled without
ALSA support but you're using ALSA ."

I noticed that I had compiled KDEMULTIMEDIA with
but not
(ARTS is compiled --with-alsa)

I will recompile and try again.
