You have to run it from a terminal as it is not smart enough to check
for a jack server (so by default it uses alsa and alsa is busy because
jack is using it). So try "alsplayer -o jack" from a terminal... If you
are just using alsa you will also probably have problems with the RME
card because alsaplayer tries to use alsa parameters more suited to a
"consumer" card and does not adapt automatically to what the card can
