Edit: I'm trying a different tack at the problem, by using
/dev/midi with C.
Hello all! I recently got a Akai MPD24 MIDI controller, as part of a piece of software I'm writing. I'm looking to use the dials on it to control the view of an OpenGL window. I've already got the OpenGL part working with GTK+ sliders, so the only problem is getting the MIDI device set up.
I found the OSS MIDI libraries, and it appears that they are working correctly, but for some reason it can't probe it correctly.

Has anyone been able to use a MIDI device through Linux, or have any idea as to what the mysterious "error -5" is?
