Slight problem

On an x86 pc using debian and an SB128, as well as onboard ac97, I try to run some
program I made and compiled. It gives this error:
ALSA lib timer_hw.c:269:(snd_timer_hw_open) extended read is not supported
(SNDRV_TIMER_IOCTL_TREAD)
ALSA lib timer_hw.c:269:(snd_timer_hw_open) extended read is not supported
(SNDRV_TIMER_IOCTL_TREAD)
open /dev/sequencer: No such device
Segmentation fault

The same source runs fine on a a G4 machine(pegasos2) with debian also, but using only
ac97 sound.
The segfault happens right at this line:
somepointer=SDL_SetVideoMode(XRES,YRES,32,SDL_SWSURFACE);

I have fooled around with some environment variables, but the segfault will not go away.
As for the other error, it’ll just give a different message. The soundcard works ok, as I
can use it with xmms.

Thank you–
