Now we _know_ you are using jack1 and _not_ jack2.
Did you compile software?

This shouldn't cause too much latency.

Boot a live media. Since modern Linux usually use systemd, you not  
necessarily need to chroot, alternatively you could use a systemd-nspawn  

Mount the root partition of the install, replace /dev/sda1 by the correct  

# mkdir /mnt/linux
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/linux
# systemd-nspawn -qD /mnt/linux
# passwd root


# passwd username

if you don't use a root account, but sudo only, if so replace "username"  
by the name of the first user (UID 1000).

Push Ctrl+D to leave the container.
