Hello everyone,

I've just upgraded my debian system from etch to sid.
Using the precompiled jack binaries, I get the following

	$ jackd
	jackd: symbol lookup error: jackd: undefined symbol: _jack_get_microseconds

The error occurs regardless of command-line options, such as

	jackd -R -v -d alsa 

A web search turned up a suggestion to remove old
jack libraries, which I've done. I now have these two

ii  jackd     0.103.0-6 JACK Audio Connection Kit (server and example clients)
ii  libjack0  0.103.0-6 JACK Audio Connection Kit (libraries)

The libraries are installed in /usr/lib/jack.

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 28488 Jun 23  2007 jack_oss.so

A strings search that they _do_ contain _jack_get_microseconds.

Can someone suggest if there are anything else I might
have missed?
