Thank you for your reply. Maybe I'm going to accept your gentle offer.
Yesterday I've tried to repeat the experience to check when the card is
blasting. It is not always like this, but it happens when I reboot to
Debian 2.1 and it modprobes midi right after I used RedHat 6.0 for a
while. I checked the boot process of RedHat and it seems to load and
save mixer settings at boot time and halt. I don't know if this could be
causing the problem. A second possibility is the init.d script that I
added for loading midi. There I just do a /sbin/modprobe midi but in my
/etc/conf.modules I do a post-install midi that calls sfxload for the
wave tables. How do you load them automagically? Does it load midi
modules just by that time that you call drvmidi for example? For another
reason I decided load midi at boot time is because I was getting some
freezes with X when I loaded midi manually and worked with X for a
while. Now I don't have those freezes but I have the blasts. I wonder if
the freezes have to do with the memory allocation for the DMA of this
