   Hi,if my english doesn't lie,you must enable:

   Device Drivers/Sound/Sound card support/Advanced Linux Sound Architecture

<*>   Sequencer dummy client
    Or choose  <M>   instead
      This is from the "help" tab of the kernel menuconfig
Say Y here to enable the dummy sequencer client.  This client is a 
simple MIDI-through client: all normal input events are  redirected to 
the output port immediately.
You don't need this unless you want to connect many MIDI  devices or 
applications together.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module  will be 
called snd-seq-dummy.

  Symbol: SND_SEQ_DUMMY [=y]
    Prompt: Sequencer dummy client
Defined at sound/core/Kconfig:31  
Depends on: !M68K && SOUND!=n && SND_SEQUENCER    
->Device Drivers 

     -> Sound       
        -> Advanced Linux Sound 

           -> Sequencer support (SND_SEQUENCER [=y])  

  Hope this help.
