is says i need to run jack before running ardour but
when i want to runjack i can see:

[mak@bilbo mak]$ jackstart
jackstart: cannot get realtime capabilities, current
capabilities are:
           =ep cap_setpcap-ep
    probably running under a kernel with capabilities
    a suitable kernel would have printed something
like "=eip"

how to start jack??

You can start jack with the root account which
dictates that all applications will also need to be
started by root.

If you want to run jack from a normal user account
you'll need to enable capabilities in the kernel--I
assume you're using a 2.4.? series kernel. You can
find instructions for patching the kernel capabilities
in the jack FAQ.
