For the record these are the two remaining errors once exitemu is run. ERROR: libao: unable to get driver id ERROR: alsa_midi (ALSA lib): rawmidi_hw.c:235:(snd_rawmidi_hw_open) : No such file or directory open /dev/snd/midiC0D0 failed I fixed the code page error by editing /etc/profile and ~/.bash_profile files, sometimes it doesn't pay to trust systemd. The alsa-midi error above if it is an error can't find a device or file it's supposed to open. Probably since I haven't got the right package or packages installed on this system to make that happen. libao is definitely on the system so why its ID can't be found is puzzling.
