Hi All.

Forgive me, But I'm a linux-ly challenged old fart who left the cushy  
world of Mac OSX and I am currently trying to set up the sound in  
Two issues:
I get a timidity error whenever it updates ...

Setting up timidity (2.13.2-15ubuntu1) ...
  * Starting  
* Starting TiMidity++ ALSA midi  
emulation...                            [fail]
invoke-rc.d: initscript timidity, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing timidity (--configure):
  subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ubuntustudio-audio:
  ubuntustudio-audio depends on timidity; however:
   Package timidity is not configured yet.
dpkg: error processing ubuntustudio-audio (--configure):
  dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

The second issue is when I try to run the JACK controller.

Creating link /home/gary/.kde/socket-unixOffice.

Sorry. The audio interface "hw:0" doesn't support any of the hardware  
sample formats that JACK's alsa-driver can use.

Could it be the sound card is too old? If so, can anyone recommend a  
linux friendly alternative.

UbuntuStudio looks awesome, but I haven't been able to take full  
advantage of it yet

This is my system hardware. it's old, but so am I.
