At the risk of repeating myself, in the time that I've been just reading 
this thread (not to mention the time that you've been putting into 
trying the stuff mentioned) I could have downloaded 64Studio, set aside 
a 5-10 GB partition, installed it, and had a working system with all the 
real-time patched AMD64 music-enabled system that you can get. Yes, 
you've got to dual boot, I do it all the time. Ubuntu is my family 
system that we use for work and play, but when I want to do music I boot 
into 64Studio. It's simply a lot easier than trying to make a general 
purpose distro into a music enabled one.
