Hello everybody,

I'm trying to install a soundblaster AWE64 (chipset CT5880), with a joystick port to connect external MIDI devices. I can get audio output, but I also would like to:
- upload soundfonts to this chip,
- use MIDI interfaces from this card, to play MIDI files through this chipset instead of using Timidity, and to communicate with external MIDI devices

I'm trying to do this in Ubuntu 10.04 (kernel 2.6.32)

Please note that I know quite well how Linux works in general, but I have very small knowledge in computer assisted music (I'm trying to install this for my wife, who would like to use rosegarden to write music).

Here is the output of some commands, please tell me if you need some more information:

# lsmod
