I am having two problems I cannot fix. I am using SuSE 6.4, with the KDE
installed and in use. 1) I can't get the parport drivers installed (to use
my tape drive thru the parallel port) because /dev/lp0 is "in use", and the
drivers can't grab it. I tried to stop the printer daemon (lpsched), but
that didn't help. What do I do?
2) When I try to play midis (with kmidi), it refuses, saying that
"/dev/sequencer is in use by another program", yet no midi's are playing. No
sound at all, except when I play mp3's, which play just fine (so I know the
sound card and its drivers are working ok). I can't find any programs or
drivers running which would grab /dev/sequencer.
