Thanks for that Ralf, I have wondered in the past if there's a proper way to use these things - how's this?

...and I now have a new shiny kernel - and a result: The FA101 has MIDI I/O showing in JACK MIDI, which is superb!
Thanks to both of you - I'd never have thought of touching the kernel to solve these problems.
I went to do my sysex recording just now, and unfortunately I can't get these new "EDIROL FA-101 MIDI 1" ports to connect to anything. This isn't something I've experienced before - you can Alt-C to connect like anything else, but no connection line appears no matter how many times I try. I've restarted Jack to no avail.
Any more suggestions?
