MusE 0.6.1 depends on libjack0 (>=0.71.2) and libqt3c102-mt (>=3:3.1.1) The 
latter seems intertwined with the whole kde structure. I have it installed 
alongside kde3, but sadly not working yet.
MusE 0.6.0 runs under woody & therefore kde2 (sort of) but has b0rked some of 
my kde components, probably for similar reasons. Actually, I should qualify 
that, MusE works fine, records and everything AFAIX, but I've somewhat broken 
kde in the process. It depends (sic) on how much functionality you require 
out of kde apps. 
Of course SuSE may work differently from Debian. I really am no expert.

I used to have a working version of Timidity, but I seem to have probs with 
recent versions. I like it a lot. The working version (I don't remember which 
version, sorry) just worked. Incidentally I think all these alsamixer 
functions you speak of are a function of your soundcard rather than the mixer 
utility. Again, see disclaimer above.

Anyone who wishes to point out the error of my ways would be heartily
