Thanks. Well, if I uncheck the realtime opton, JACK will now start. But 
it worked fine up until a couple of weeks ago.

I don't think that it coincided with any changes which I made, but I'll 
have to check that. I think I may have upgraded my kernel at some point 
(but only to a newer CCRMA kernel).

Maybe it's time to reboot into thwe older kernel and see if the problem 
goes away...

Well, if this turns out to be the problem, then I'll have to learn how 
to set one of these up I guess.
