no problem here on a P 5OO + timidity, without root provileges. The fact that you have Planet CCRMA packages is really a good thing. Don't forget to check 

	cat /proc/sys/kernel/lowlatency

This command should return "1". About crackles, I had a lot with fluidsynth before, so I use timidity now. I use fluidsynth for loading a particuliar sound, instead of all the 127 GM sounds of timidity.

Then in the midiport configuration it popped up with timidity port 0 for the first midi port.  Unfortunately this produced no sounds on testing.  I opened the track info number and tried to select a preset, but all that it had was "???" -- no patches to select from.

Following Planet CCRMA web page advices, I launch timidity server this way:

/usr/bin/timidity -iA -B2,8 -Os

Hope it helps.
