Timidity for Midi

Needed to play some midi files all of a sudden onmy suse 10.2 box. One thing i get irritated about in Linux is that it seldom works out of the box. I had selected the complete multimedia package during installation but somehow midi support doesn’t seem to have been installed.
A google search sorted it out though and midi works fine now.

All I had to do was open up yast software management and select timidity to be installed. Works fine through timidity now. I really hate not being able to update suse 10.2 through ftp over our proxy. Still it would have been nice to be able to play midi through amarok, my default player.
